Workshops & Training

The Center for Student Wellness provides trainings and workshops for students, faculty and staff. Participants leave with practical skills and a better understanding of how to create a healthier and safer campus community.

Currently, we have a few options for workshop delivery: live via Zoom or pre-recorded. Keep reading for more information!

live via zoom

Request an online, live, interactive workshop for your group! All of our workshops listed at the bottom of this page are available at this time.

  • Mission and Services

  • Let’s Talk About Sex
  • Safer Party Culture

Check back later for more options, like our Healthy Relationship series and Check on U-Tah Bystander Intervention course!


Discussion Guide - Whether live or pre-recorded, workshops can include an accompanying discussion guide to involve audience members in critical thinking and personal reflection. This is a great option for larger classes, and can be paired with an assignment to ensure completion.

Follow-up Live Discussion - You will also have the opportunity to host a follow-up discussion led by our ACES peer health educators. This discussion will be a free-flow dialogue on the critical pieces of the workshop. This is a great option for pre-recorded workshops. Attendance can be optional or mandatory for your group. This is also a great way to offer extra credit!

"It's not you, it's me." Ahh, the less popular, and still important, part of a relationship...
