How Can Students Get Involved?
The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC), an organization open to all students, acts as liaison between Health Services and the student body. Its volunteer members help promote programs such as blood drives, sponsor guest speakers on health topics, and serve on Health Services committees. Student input is always important and SHAC is interested in members. Inquire at Health Services.
Students who are passionate about the well-being of their campus community are welcomed to join PULSE. Professional Health Education staff train volunteers as Peer Health Educators that promote healthy behaviors and wellness among all members of the Cal Poly community. This hands-on experience provides an opportunity to explore sectors of Public Health, gain knowledge on current behavioral health trends, enhance interpersonal and leadership skills, develop competencies for creating, implementing, and evaluating programs, and learn effective marketing strategies. PULSE programs consist of wellness workshops, presentations, coaching sessions, and educational outreach to the Cal Poly campus.
