Wellness and Support Services

Welcome to WELLNESS AND SUPPORT SERVICES , a unit of the Student Affairs Division.


Ellen C. Wertlieb, Ph.D.
Director of Wellness and Support Services
(518) 381-1282

Schenectady County Community College's Wellness and Support Services include: ADA Transition Services (e.g., Disability Resources and Services), Check-In Service, Student Activities, and the Student Veterans Office. All of our programs are designed to facilitate personal and academic success. They are founded on a model that regards wellness as an active process which includes the self-awareness and choices one makes when interacting with the world on the quest towards a meaningful and successful life.


The purpose of Wellness and Support Services is to encourage the pursuit of healthy lifestyles that balance academics, leisure, family, and life commitments. We take a holistic approach, viewing wellness as a multidimensional concept. Wellness and Support Services seeks to fulfill its purpose by partnering with faculty, student, staff, and community members. All our programs embrace diversity, respect, access and equality, along with a sense of individual and shared responsibility.

During the September 18 Club Carnival, we asked for your thoughts about wellness. Your ideas are shown in the word cloud that is located below.
