Saluki Student-Athlete Well-Being

Saluki Student-Athlete Well-Being


The Student-Athlete Well-Being Fund is dedicated to holistically supporting our student-athletes during their time here. The efforts of our Sports Medicine, Strength & Conditioning, and Equipment Teams ensure that our student-athletes are safe during and outside of competition. These three areas are crucial to the success of our department and operate programs such as our athletic training, nutrition, and equipment safety.  

Over the next four years, our goal is to raise private support for student-athletes and the programs, facilities, coaching and other initiatives that contribute to their success and build awareness and pride for Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
