Consulting Services

The Student Life team can meet with faculty and staff to consult on proactive initiatives and/or ways to feel prepared in supporting student well-being. Beyond on-demand training and workshops, our team is available to:

  • Provide consultation on student, faculty, and staff mental health and well-being initiatives;
  • Work with your team to explore ways you can embed well-being in policies or strategic planning;
  • Identify and strengthen capacity for implementing health promotion action in academic programs and Institute committees;
  • Act as a liaison with other Health and Well-being providers and campus support services.

If you would like to work with an Early Assist Manager or Health Promotion strategist, please email the Student Life Office and one of our team members will follow up with you.
