Join a Peer Group!
You have the power to help someone and hone your leadership skills by joining a peer group at UCR!
The WELL's peer programs raise awareness and educate UCR students about a variety of health and wellness topics, provide opportunities for professional development and foster connections between students on campus.
Our peers represent The WELL (and R'Pantry!) to the University, and take the lead on the best ways to reach UCR students with our messages, education and programming around student health. All of The WELL's peer groups and student staff work together in partnership frequently to address multiple dimensions of wellness.
Peer Group and Student Staff Opportunities in The WELL
Active Minds peers strive to reduce the stigma that often surrounds mental illness, and promote mental health, by increasing awareness, coordinating interactive events, and providing mental health/wellness resources and support.
Golden ARCHES peer educators advocate for responsible decision-making about sexual health, alcohol and other drug use, and general well-being. Golden ARCHES has a special focus on fraternity/sorority and student-athlete communities, in addition to their campus-wide education efforts.
WELL Front Desk Student Staff
The WELL relies on our Front Desk student staff to be the face of our office, and to provide information, education, and resources to everyone that walks into our space. They are genuinely helpful people who are happy to inform and connect students to whatever they need on their journey to wellness.
Graduate Student Wellness Liaison
The WELL's Graduate Student Wellness Liaison partners frequently with GSA and GradSuccess to develop, promote, and implement graduate student specific wellness programming. The Liaison attends meetings and sits on various committees across campus, and strategizes ways to best reach graduate students and their unique wellness needs at UCR.
Team FRESH balances direct services through R'Pantry distributions with awareness campaigns, educational programs, CalFresh promotion, and social events to support student success through basic needs security.
