Swansea University has been awarded the Meningitis Aware Recognition Mark (MARM) for its commitment in raising awareness amongst students and staff, promoting the vaccine to new and current students and its policies and procedures in dealing with cases of meningitis on campus.
The University can now display its recognition mark and certificate to show that it is a Meningitis Aware University.
Asad Rahman, Head of Advice, Support and Welfare at Swansea University said: “We are delighted to have received the Meningitis Aware Recognition Mark Award which demonstrates Swansea University’s commitment to student and staff health and wellbeing.
Recognition like this, on a national scale, reflects Swansea University’s belief that welfare is fundamental to a positive student and staff experience. From our awareness-raising campaigns for new students to the behind the scenes work that goes into supporting students in confirmed cases of meningitis. I extend my thanks to all staff and students who have had involvement with helping to share the message of the seriousness of meningitis in a university setting and the importance of getting vaccinated.”
