Peer Facilitated Programs:
Give a Hoot: Owls Speak Up
Give a Hoot provides students with the resources, skills, and confidence to step in when they find themselves in a risky or challenging situation. Students will explore what types of actions are appropriate for more and less urgent situations and, importantly, ways that students can look out for one another. This program covers topics like mental health, body image, alcohol/drug use, sexual health and sexual assault. This program qualifies for STARS credit.
Give a Hoot is available upon request through our program request form and is offered at the Wellness Resource Center on select dates found on our OwlConnect page.
Alcohol 101: Drinking alcohol is common among college students, and this program is designed to help students explore why they choose to (or not to) drink. Through a series of games and activities, students will learn about ways to keep themselves and their fellow Owls safe when alcohol is in the mix!
Staff Facilitated Program:
Brief Motivational Interviewing (for faculty and staff)
This professional development session focuses on how to use Motivational Interviewing in a staff/faculty role when encountering challenging yet brief conversations with students, specifically through a health and wellness perspective. Motivational Interviewing is a set of communication skills that can enhance the effectiveness of your conversations and encourage intrinsic motivation for change, especially when broaching a difficult or uncomfortable subject with a student (or colleague) as well as supporting someone in distress. Learn about the technique and practice using the skills in everyday scenarios.
