The Student Wellness Ambassador Team (SWAT) promotes healthy behaviors and lifestyles to Illinois State University students through a variety of outreach programs.
SWAT members are Illinois State University student volunteers from varying majors and diverse backgrounds. They are trained by Health Promotion and Wellness staff to act as credible resources for fellow students in regards to a variety of issues related to overall well-being. The SWAT members facilitate interactive and educational workshops, assist with campus and community outreach projects, and staff the portable wellness gazebo, the "G Spot". The gazebo is set up around campus and provides health and wellness information and resources. SWAT members attend a weekend training retreat each semester and weekly training sessions during the fall and/or spring semesters to develop knowledge on health issues.
Greek houses, residence halls, and classrooms are some of the hosts for audiences who participate in these education-based programs.
Note: SWAT meetings are held every Wednesday from 3 - 4:30 P.M. Please keep this time available in your schedule.
