The Wellness Ambassadors Program began as an initiative developed at the request of the Faculty Senate and trains Penn faculty to serve as liaisons to other faculty. Currently, the program is being piloted in the four undergraduate schools.
As of November 2016, there are 25 Wellness Ambassadors. All Wellness Ambassadors receive ICARE training and receive information about wellness initiatives on campus and resources available to students. Each school adopts its own approach to using Wellness Ambassadors in their schools, but all Wellness Ambassadors work to promote an awareness and understanding of student wellness.
