Center for Student Well-Being (CSW)

The mission of the Center for Student Well-Being (CSW) is to help students enhance their academic and personal well-being and to accommodate the needs of students with documented disabilities. CSW helps students develop resiliency to enable them to cope with challenges on the emotional, behavioral, or cognitive levels. It also works to raise awareness among The American University in Cairo's (AUC) community about the types of challenges and disabilities that a percentage of our student body deal with so that they better understand and empathize with students experiencing difficulties and receiving care. In addition, CSW provides targeted outreach messages of well-being to the AUC community and consultation and education to faculty and staff to assist them in addressing the psychological needs of the student community.
