Health & Wellness
Emotional, Physical, Mental Health
We look at the health of our community ecosystem from the ground up. From campus safety to promoting respect and inclusion on campus, the Sterling College Wellness Team seeks to provide an environment where you can flourish.
Our Wellness Center is a fully stocked, self-serve first aid site.
Clare Dolan, Director of Wellness Services, is accessible throughout the week via tele-health, scheduled appointments, and drop-in hours. She can assist students in scheduling to help set up medical and mental health appointments with local health and wellness facilities. She is available to help students understand and access their health insurance coverage, in addition to providing for students’ minor medical needs.
The Wellness Services Team offers support to students around issues of stress, transition, general mental health, and crisis response. Students with acute mental health issues will be referred to a licensed psychologist or emergency services, if necessary.
Local Health and Wellness Resources
If a doctor’s examination or outside wellness resources are required, the Wellness Service Team will assist with appointments and transportation. Excellent facilities are available in Hardwick, 10 miles from campus, and at Copley Hospital in Morrisville, 20 miles away.
Students with chronic or long-term illness are encouraged to maintain the care of their home practitioner or to establish themselves with a doctor in the community.
As part of our commitment to the health and wellness of our community, all students are required to complete and return an Immunization Certification Form. For more information about immunizations that are required by the State of Vermont, visit the Vermont Department of Health Website.
