The Peer Health Advisers (PHAs) are a group of students on campus who aim to serve as contacts for students seeking support, to provide appropriate referral to UHS and other health-related campus resources, and to stimulate awareness of and decrease stigma around health issues by implementing health promotion programs.
There will be two categories of peer advisers: advisers in-residence at the residential colleges and advisers at-large. To maximize local affiliations and social connectedness, sophomore advisers will be in-residence; upper-class advisers will not be required to be in-residence, although they may be if they choose to live in a four-year residential college. All advisers will be expected to participate in a training at the end of spring semester and approximately 3 days at the beginning of the fall semester before classes start. Approximately 1-hour meetings will be held bi-weekly within the residential colleges. PHAs will also participate in monthly continuing education sessions.
The PHA program does not discriminate for any applicant based upon age, disability, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity and expression, marital status, national origin, parental status, physical appearance, race, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.
