The Student Wellness Ambassador Team (S.W.A.T.) provides educational programming and outreach services to the West Virginia University students throughout campus year long.


About S.W.A.T.

S.W.A.T. is a group of trained and certified students interested in being a part of a broader culture of wellbeing here at WVU. These peer educators, or what we like to call them, Wellness Ambassadors, are trained every semester to facilitate and properly educate the content of each WELLWVU liveWELL theme. S.W.A.T. works closely with R.A.s, student organizations, and other departments at WVU to maintain the furthest reach around campus in order to educate their peers on healthy lifestyle choices. This type of peer education is done through fun and interactive games and discussions. S.W.A.T. members also help produce content for the various liveWELL marketing campaigns, facilitate and promote the many WELLWVU run events, such as chillFEST, Condom Caravan, Farmer’s Market and any other appearance centering around the iconic WELLWVU Gazebo.

Every student has the ability to lead and can play a role in creating a campus culture where all can thrive! All students are welcome to join, no matter what background or major. For more information, contact the WELLWVU Office of Wellness & Health Promotion at 304-293-5054 or email Laura Stefanow
