Get Involved

Wellness Supports - Health Promotion on campus is led by our Team Coordinator with the support of student staff and volunteers. Each volunteer selects a working group to participate in during both fall and winter semesters. On a team consisting of 3-5 students, you share in the common goal striving for our campus to be a healthy place to study, work, live and play. Read below to find out which working group best suits your passions and skills:

  • Newsletters: Let’s Get Moving, a weekly newsletter that launches in January to encourage our campus community to get moving and promote physical activity. Stay -in Connected, provides ideas on how we can stay connected with each other and care for our wellbeing). This working group offers opportunities for research activities, wellness best practices, graphic design, writing and editing
