The general objectives of the course are to have students learn how to implement, coordinate, and evaluate peer led wellness programs. A key component of the wellness initiative on campus is to run programs that are led by peers (i.e., peer educator model), which increases student investment in wellness and creates leadership opportunities. The aim of this course is to provide more in depth experiential learning for students who assist in the development, coordination, and assessment of peer led wellness programs on campus. Specifically, students will gain first-hand experience with peer leader training, outreach, recruitment, social media skills, and fidelity observations. Plus, students will track, input, and analyze data from wellness workshops. Lastly, students will create and utilize partnerships and collaborations with other on campus groups.
