About Us

Department Mission Statement: The Shreiber Family Pet Therapy Program at Rowan University’s mission is to establish a program providing a variety of Animal-Assisted Activities (including Animal-Assisted Therapy, and Animal-Assisted Activities) bringing certified therapy animals to visit with Rowan University’s diverse student body, starting with our Glassboro campus (and eventually to Rowan’s other campuses, affiliates, and surrounding community) to support student health and well-being. The program partners with the other departments in the Wellness Center, including: Emergency Medical Services (EMS); Healthy Campus Initiatives (HCI); Counseling & Psychological Services (CPS); and Student Health Services (SHS). We also partner with other offices on campus, in particular, students who may be otherwise underrepresented. These partnership include: the Division of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) [such as: the Social Justice, Inclusion & Conflict Resolution Center (SJICR)]; Academic Affairs (such as: Disability Services, and, the Autism PATH Program; Military Services; and, Admissions); and the Early Childhood Demonstration Center. Partnerships also include student clubs such as: the Pre-Vet Club, and the Animal Advocacy Club.
