Become a Student Health Facilitator

Our facilitators get hands-on experience with health promotion – a must for students seeking careers in health, counseling, or education. Facilitators have the opportunity to deliver workshops on a variety of health topics, including:

  • Time management
  • Stress management
  • Benefits of sleep
  • Test anxiety
  • Alcohol & social norms

We provide facilitators with extensive training, including CPR certification, cholesterol and blood pressure screenings, and presentation skills. In the second semester of volunteering, we also offer facilitators the opportunity to shadow our healthcare providers and gain clinical experience.

Join our Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)

SHAC’s primary goal is to advise the executive director of Health & Wellness Services and Counseling and Psychological Services and act as a liaison among students, student government, and administrators. SHAC conducts program and service reviews, recommends development and establishment of new programs, reviews the department budget, and advises on financial matters.

Students on SHAC work closely with staff to provide guidance and feedback on services and initiatives related to mental, physical, and emotional health.

Student members have the opportunity to advocate for student concerns, influence decisions around health services and initiatives, develop an understanding of managing health services and initiatives on a college campus, and develop communication and leadership skills.

If you’re interested in joining SHAC, contact Melissa Painter.
