Wellness Advocate Certificate

What is a Wellness Advocate?

A Wellness Advocate (WA) supports fellow students in leading balanced lives.  They understand that health and wellness are fundamentally important to success and fulfillment on and off campus. With a foundational knowledge about wellness issues affecting college students, WAs are able to listen to concerns, communicate basic information about wellness, and refer students--who need information beyond the WA scope--to the approriate resources. Wellness Advocates will have the capability of making a positive impact on their peers' wellness--all seven dimensions of it!

As a Wellness Advocate, your role is to:

  • Understand basic information about collegiate wellness 
  • Advocate for the wellness of your peers without judgment
  • Listen to your peers
  • Refer peers to the appropriate campus resources
  • Be aware of the limits of your scope of knowledge 


Our Wellness Advocate certificate program has transformed into one streamlined session of interactive education and skill-building. It provides an introductory look at collegiate health and wellness, why it's important, and the factors that hinder students from maintaining a their wellness in a balanced way. 

Our Wellness certificate program is designed to engage and help you learn how to use your newfound knowledge to advocate for others... and it's a great resume booster! It is offered to U of U students ONLY.

This certificate is FREE. It is not associated with your transcripts and we do not give college credit for it.
