Counseling & Wellness
Counseling and Wellness Services is a unit of the School of Professional Psychology and functions in cooperation with the division of Student Affairs as Wright State University's counseling center. The mission of Counseling and Wellness Services is to promote optimal health through the provision of quality service and training to the Wright State University community in a welcoming environment that appreciates multiculturalism and diversity.
We affirm the full humanity and dignity of every human being, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. We create and maintain an open and supportive environment for GLBTQA faculty and staff by providing educational programs, opportunities for social interaction and advocacy.
Gay & Lesbian Medical Affiliates
This is a social and support group for gay and lesbian medical students and physicians which holds monthly meetings. The aim of this group is to deal with the social and professional problems that confront medical professionals who are gay, lesbian or bisexual and to address issues of prejudice and fear that exist within the medical community towards gay colleagues and patients. Monthly meetings vary from open rap sessions to potluck get-togethers, fostering a feeling of cohesiveness and support.
Rainbow Alliance shall serve to support, educate, and provide outreach and advocacy to the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Community and their Heterosexual Allies (GLBTQA). Rainbow Alliance will work to provide education and programming towards better understanding of the GLBTQA Community and will work with other organizations to obtain this goal. Rainbow Alliance is a safe and healthy atmosphere that will nurture personal growth between all of its members. Rainbow Alliance will create a mutual support network that encourages respect, and trust among all members of the organization. Rainbow Alliance will maintain absolute confidentiality on the basis of a member’s sexual orientation. No “outing” of other members will be tolerated. As an organization, Rainbow Alliance will strive to maintain an admirable standing in the public eye.
The Office of Student Activities at Wright State University is a team of student-centered professionals committed to providing student organization services, campus programs, fraternity and sorority advisement and leadership development programs that support students’ holistic development.
By promoting our values of cultivating community, appreciating and respecting diversity, promoting accessibility, enhancing empowerment, creating collaboration, delivering service, and modeling the leadership principles we teach, the staff provide a framework for purposeful and meaningful experiences that prepare students for life.
The Wright State University Women's Center offers resources and support for women on campus and in the surrounding area through facilitating connections, providing resources, and advocating for equitable experiences and opportunities for all people. The Center actively seeks to create an environment in which women are supported, encouraged, and less isolated than what has been documented historically.
The Women’s Center believes that equitable situations for women will in turn improve the lives of all people. In other words, when women have opportunities to utilize their talents and efforts to their fullest extent, both men and women benefit. The Center seeks to honor the contributions and experiences of women of all ages, socioeconomic situations, physical conditions, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, spiritual beliefs, and racial/ethnic origins.
Stop by our new office on the lower level of the Student Union or give us a call at (937) 775-5570 if you have questions or would like to get involved on campus!
