Interested in volunteering with Campus Health & Wellbeing?
Read below on how you can get involved with our department! Feel free to email with any questions.
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, peer support sessions, and educational outreach to the Cal Poly campus.

The Food Pantry was created out of a need identified by faculty and staff who were seeing an increased number of students going hungry and without the means to purchase basic food and supplies. Cal Poly community members can choose from a wide variety of packaged and canned foods, fresh produce, frozen meals, and personal hygiene products. It takes a vibrant community to manage the ongoing needs of students in the Food Pantry and volunteers are always welcome!
The Food Pantry is currently accepting volunteers to assist with the weekly restock. Interested in volunteering? Sign up here: https://tinyurl.com/volunteeringspring2022
