Wellness and Health Promotion

Health and Wellness Crew

  • The life of a university student is both challenging and exciting, and sometimes incredibly stressful. We're here to help! The Health and Wellness Crew (HAWC) is made up of student volunteers who are trained as certified peer health educators. We're here to answer questions, offer support, provide resources and develop and implement programs and awareness campaigns across campus.

    You can find us in Wellness and Health Promotion, Student Center 380, call us at 206.220.8450 or email hawc@seattleu.edu


    What is a Peer Health Educator?

    A peer health educator is a student who is trained in the myriad of issues that college students face, physical wellness, mental health, alcohol and other drugs, as well as healthy relationships. We conduct a variety of health promotion activities to the campus community.

    What do we do?

    All sorts of fun and educational things! HAWC acts as a resource for the SU community by organizing events, developing health and wellness awareness campaigns, handing out information, facilitating dialogue around tough issues, staffing the Office for Wellness and Health Promotion, meeting with students 1 on 1...and a whole lot more!

    Who can be a part of HAWC?

    Anyone who has a genuine interest in health and wellness issues and wants to make a difference on campus. Applications are available each spring for the following academic year.
