Student Health and Wellness Ambassadors

Description: The Student Health and Wellness Ambassadors are dedicated to giving students a voice to the Student Health and Wellness Unit.

Mission: Ambassadors will partner with the Student Health and Wellness unit to help build a culture of health and well being on campus by conducting outreach on health and wellness resources, being key communicators of health and wellness, and serving in an advisory capacity to the Student Health and Wellness unit.

Values: Ambassadors value voices of different student populations in discussions of departmental practices, particularly student populations that have not had the opportunity to voice their concerns in the past because of social inequities that exist. We value continuous improvement of our university and we are determined to uphold the voices of students to help make The Student Health and Wellness services equitable, inclusive, and student centered. We are dedicated to putting student wellness at the center of Iowa State culture.
