WHO WE ARE
Peers Understanding, Listening, Supporting, Educating (PULSE) is a collaborative, student-led health education program that seeks to achieve a balanced, thriving campus at Cal Poly. We strive to promote healthy lifestyle management through an intersectional lens by empowering students with knowledge, skills, and resources to achieve holistic well-being for themselves and their community. Our primary goal is to develop programming that is fun, safe, supportive, interactive, and educational that reaches the entire campus community regardless of background or identity.

Students who are passionate about the well-being of their campus community are welcome 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.
