Getting involved is a great way to make friends, build community and to journey with through your college experience!

In efforts to bring MSU student voices into the conversation about health and wellbeing, University Health and Wellbeing (UHW) created a student advisory council, the Student Wellbeing Activator Network (SWAN). The purpose of SWAN is to garner student input and feedback to cultivate culturally informed and holistic health and wellbeing services, programs, and initiatives for MSU students.Swan logo

SWAN has 20 seats each semester for student representatives. 15 seats are for student members who are also a member of a Registered Student Organization (RSO) at MSU and serve as a liaison between the advisory group and their RSO. SWAN meets monthly with the Graduate Student SWAN Coordinator and members of UHW Senior Leadership Team to review current student health and wellbeing policies, services, programs, and initiatives in order provide their feedback and suggestions.

SWAN is an excellent leadership opportunity for student advocacy in the topic of health and wellbeing. Student participants have the opportunity to leave a lasting, positive, impact on MSU's campus.

For more information or if you are a student interested in becoming a part of the network, please email Carschana Laporte, the Student Activator Wellbeing Network (SWAN) Graduate Coordinator:

The SWAN Initiative was the recipient of the 2023 American College Health Foundation Well-Being Award and the MSU Creating Inclusive Excellence Grants from the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion.
