USC Hillel is committed to enhancing student well-being and cultivating a healthy community through our Bradley Sonnenberg Wellness Initiative. The initiative focuses on physical and mental health programs, including one-on-one professional counseling as well as peer-to-peer support. This ensures that any student who comes to Hillel, regardless of religious identity, receives services to meet their needs, with an eventual goal of developing a roadmap to healthier experiences. ​

Vision

THE BRADLEY SONNENBERG WELLNESS INITIATIVE

Mission

Our mission is to promote and improve the well-being of all USC students through advocacy, engaging events and educational opportunities, and clinical support. 

In pursuit of our mission, we will:

 

  • Provide psychotherapy and/or referral services to any enrolled USC student

  • Collaborate with USC Hillel student leaders to develop student- led programming that celebrates and improves well-being

  • Partner with on-campus institutions to create a culture of support and programming that reaches beyond USC Hillel's doors

  • Educate and train staff, student leaders, and campus organizations on prevention, intervention, and advocacy resources

Core Values

STUDENT-CENTERED​

We will provide a safe and nurturing environment for students to develop and lead meaningful wellness programming with staff support.

COLLABORATIVE

We value the importance of creating and maintaining partnerships across USC and the greater Jewish community to strengthen program outcomes and student support.

INCLUSIVE

We celebrate equity, diversity, and inclusion as the foundation for a healthier USC community and world.

PIONEERING

We will challenge ourselves to be leaders in higher education and the Jewish community in supporting young adult well- being and resilience.

The initiative is possible only through the generous support of Glenn and Andrea Sonnenberg, in memory of their son,

along with a Cutting Edge Grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles.
