“My name is Wan’ya Williams, I am in my second year of graduate school at Indiana University pursuing my master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in sports. I received my undergraduate degree at Tiffin University in Health, Fitness & Wellness. I was also a student-athlete and was a part of the track and field program. I want to help promote social justice, and social change by focusing on the unique needs of athletes at both an individual and environmental level. I want to help promote the health and well-being of athletes through direct practice, community organizing advocacy, policy development, education, and research. Also, to help athletes address their behavioral health and help athletic organizations, communities, and other social institutions to recognize athletes as a vulnerable population.”

Dominique Cole is a MSW student currently completing a practicum with Indiana Tech athletics. Dominique is serving campus as a Sports Social Worker, helping student athletes cope with their mental health surrounding college sports and other life aspects.
“My name is Dominique Cole, I am currently in my final year of obtaining my master’s degree in Social Work with a focus of mental health and addictions from Indiana University. I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Saint Francis in Social Work and while at USF, I was also a student athlete and was a part of the volleyball team all four years of my undergraduate. Being involved at Indiana Tech and getting to work with student athletes, I hope to advocate for the student athlete’s mental health needs. Having once been a student athlete, I understand the chaotic schedules that students have and the pressures of being both an athlete and a student. I hope to serve as an aide for the students on campus by providing direct practice with individual sessions, as well as facilitating groups. In collaboration with the students, coaches, and mental health team on campus I was to help address the mental health concerns that are present among the student athlete population. I have a true passion for mental health and erasing the negative stigma that often surrounds the topic. I think it is imperative to promote self-care, healthy coping skills, and supportive safe spaces for people of all kinds.”
