Health and Wellness Peer Education

 

 

 

Mission:

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.

Academic Year 2020-2021 Recruitment:

The application for the 2020-2021 academic year will launch on November 11, 2019 and we will accept applications through February 14, 2020. On February 5, 2020 we will have a Peer Education Open House with the Student Anti-Violence Peer Educators and Mental Health Services Peer Educators to highlight the work that we all do for the campus community. We encourage any interested applicants to stop by the open house to meet the professional and student staff! More details about this event will be released in the Spring 2020 semester.
