Wellbeing Ambassadors

Wellbeing Ambassadors are U of I students who are passionate about the health and well-being of the campus community. Students will leverage their voice to cultivate positive community relationships during their time at U of I and beyond through their words, actions, and interactions with others. 

We are currently seeking motivated students to join the team of Wellbeing Ambassadors. Ambassadors will attend a powerful and engaging Sources of Strength Training and choose one of three wellbeing tracks to focus on through the rest of the academic year: resiliency & suicide prevention, alcohol harm reduction, or Vandals for Recovery. Ambassadors will work closely with staff mentors and peers to move forward evidence-based initiatives and messaging to impact student health and wellbeing.

Learn more about Wellbeing Ambassadors, nominate students, and register below. 

  1. Be healthy role models and good stewards of information
  2. Collaborate with mentors and peers
  3. Developing and distributing awareness or norming campaigns and
  4. Co-facilitate programs for peer groups

These four essential responsibilities are what makes this program unique –Ambassadors play a big role in determining the messaging, campaigns, workshops and trainings that come out of the three tracks and make an impact on campus culture.

Engage in the important conversation of alcohol misuse in the campus community and establish long-term initiatives to address high-risk drinking on campus. Use your voice to develop messages and training aimed at preventing alcohol-related harm among peers while focusing on Sources of Strength.

Build U of I’s collegiate recovery community, Vandals for Recovery. Learn and understand the unique needs of students in recovery from substance misuse, develop an education and awareness campaign about recovery in academia, and create supportive, social spaces for students in recovery to thrive.

The goal of this track is build resilience on campus through student interactions based in the upstream model. Students will develop and deliver ways to create connection, share messages of hope, help, and strength, and enhance the strengths that fellow students already have and are hoping to enhance.
