Internships & Practicums
Well-Being Assessment Research Fellow
Understanding student health and well-being needs is a necessary step in the strategic planning process. The undergraduate research fellow will dive deeply into the results from the 2023 National College Health Assessment. They will help analyze data across colleges and demographic groups, critically assess needs and trends, and create reports and presentation materials. The fellow will also be involved in creating a communication plan that shares the results in multi-modal formats to campus stakeholders.

Student Wellness Internships
Student Wellness provides a variety of internship and practicum opportunities for students interested in obtaining experience in the college health environment. Opportunities are available for Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Practicum students and interns are required to register the experience for academic credit (usually through their academic department or the Career Center).
Our services involve many health topics including nutrition, physical activity, stress management, substance use, and sexual health. Student experiences typically include assisting with health outreach events (fitness assessments, health fairs, presentations), making health materials (posters, handouts, etc.), and collecting data. Often, students will observe our professional staff in one-on-one appointments with students as well (nutrition, fitness, alcohol/drugs). Usually students have a project that they focus on, although we like giving them additional experiences as well.
