Peer Health Educator Staff
The Department of Student Health Promotion uses trained graduate and undergraduate peer educators called PHEs – Peer Health Educators. The PHEs provide many of the department’s services and provide key leadership in creating a healthy campus. The PHEs have received specialized training in public health initiatives, health promotion programming, and dimensions of wellness. Peer Health Educators help to develop, plan, and implement services, events, and programs that promote and enhance the well being of students and the campus community. The PHEs are the University's first response to health promotion and wellness education.
To become PHE staff, a student must fill out an application, submit a resume, and complete an interview with a presentation. PHE staff typically work a minimum of 10 hours per week, up to 20 hours per week.
