RESIDENT LIFE STAFF
In addition to the extensive information found elsewhere on the Center for Health Education and Promotion website, we have compiled the following health education resources specifically designed for you. Please contact us if you have any questions about the resources.
If your event or meeting addresses a health issue in any way, consider providing brochures and handouts related to your topic. The Center for Health Education and Promotion can provide quantities of these materials from our Resource Library to assist participants in taking a health issue to a more personal level. Call (288-5217) or stop by our office in the 707 Building to see what materials we currently have available. *Note: To ensure that we have enough time to pull materials, please make requests at least 48 hours before the materials are needed.
Looking for a presenter for a program on a health issue? Let us help with the programming requirements of your hall. The Center for Health Education and Promotion staff (Peer Health Educators and Professional Health Education staff) offer a variety of educational and interactive outreach programs that can be scheduled at your convenience. Click here for a list of topic areas and programs.
Additionally, we also do programming for body art, credit card debt, gambling awareness, and other topics. If there is something that you have an interest in but do not see it listed, please contact us and we will work together to determine and design what will best meet your needs and the needs of your floor/wing. Our programs are interactive, fun, and are designed to empower and motivate participants to think about issues relating to health and wellness. *Note: To ensure that we have enough time to secure presenters, please make requests at least 7 days before the desired program date.
BULLETIN BOARD IN A BAG
The Center for Health Education and Promotion offers a collection of materials to help you put together a quick and informative bulletin board for your floor/wing. Each one consists of several posters and an assortment of brochures pertaining to a particular health and wellness topic. You could also use these in conjunction with a health-related program that you are planning. “Bulletin Board in a Bag” pieces are meant as a starting point…you don’t have to limit yourself to the resources provided. To pick-up a "Bulletin Board in a Bag," stop by the Center for Health Education and Promotion during our normal business hours (8:30am - 4:30pm).
We have many previous Bulletin Board in a Bag items now available on a first-come, first-served basis. See our Archives page for more ideas, too! Stop in at the Center for Health Education and Promotion during our normal business hours to pick up one or two of your favorites.

To browse through past "Bulletin Board in a Bag" samples, visit our Archives page. *Note: because of limited resources, our office only produces one monthly "Bulletin Board in a Bag" per residence hall. The "Bulletin Board in a Bag" for the month will go to the first RA/PA to stop in our office from each residence hall.
MEETING YOUR PROGRAMMING REQUIREMENTS
Each month, we will post a list of the top 5 ways that you can collaborate and work with the Center for Health Education and Promotion to meet your wellness Programming Requirements. All ideas will be pulled straight from that month's edition of “FYI: What's Up” and the PHE Program List. For current and past lists of the collaboration ideas, visit our archives.
IDEAS FOR HEALTHY SNACKS
If the Doritos and soda aren't cutting it anymore at your programs and meetings, then check out "Keeping Snacks Healthier," a compilation of ideas, recipes and resources to help make those treats healthier for your residents.
Do you have residents looking for volunteer opportunities? Do you have residents with health-related interests? Are you looking for some creative ways to put your own programming skills to use?
