Health and Wellness Peer Education




*Due to COVID-19 & TCNJ’s Fall Flex Semester, our program will be operating virtually from August – January 2020. Our professional staff member will work remotely and all meetings, workshops, and events will be held virtually. We plan to launch our brand new health and wellness workshop, to the campus community, and will also have a virtual Thrive Wellness Week in October! For updates and information please follow us on Instagram @tcnj_hwpe. We will update this page as necessary. Stay safe, lions!*


The purpose of the Health and Wellness Peer Educators is to promote resiliency and overall health and wellness to the TCNJ campus community. We believe health and wellness to be foundational to the pursuit of knowledge. Our mission is to promote and nurture a community of care supportive of healthy life long personal and relational behaviors. We provide TCNJ students with opportunities for development in all areas of wellness: intellectual, spiritual, financial, emotional, physical, social, and environmental through advocacy, education, services, and programs.
