How do I become a SWL?

Students interested in becoming Student Wellness Leaders (SWLs) must submit a SWL application  during the recruitment period.

Of the pool of initial applicants, some will advance to a group interview where the current SWLs and Director of Health and Wellness Education will choose and craft invitations to join the group.

Mandatory requirements for all new members of the group include a 3-4 day training session once per academic year, a 1 day refresher/retreat once per academic year, and attendance at weekly 90 minute meetings. Students who are planning to be abroad during their junior year are eligible to join the SWLs, but must attend the required 3-4 day training before facilitating workshops and events.
