Academic Support

Wellness/Recreation Services can provide academic support in a number of areas including class presentations, programming in the Wellness Resource Lab, and student research. Internship, practicum and volunteer experiences are also available for students.

Peer Health Educators

Student staff are trained and work as Peer Health Educators taking wellness programming into the residence halls and Greek houses on our campus.

They facilitate such programs as Empathy Belly, Condom Sense, Massage, and Healthy Intimate Relationships. Find a complete list of programs and descriptions.

To schedule a program for your group, please call the Wellness Resource Lab at (319) 273-6119.

Violence/Alcohol Education and Prevention

UNI has placed a great deal of resources toward prevention and education initiatives relating to violence and alcohol use in the college setting.  These initiatives range from programming and training, to awareness campaigns, speakers and events.

Developed programs include Intervention:  What would you do?, Just the Facts, and Sexual Consent: The Bottom Line. Other topics often presented focus on educating the campus community regarding university policy, as well as available student services and resources.

If you are interested in having a program or training session for your group, we can provide this service from what we have developed, or we will tailor the content to best meet the needs of your group. 

To schedule a program or training session or gain further information, please contact Mark Rowe-Barth, Substance Abuse & Violence Intervention Services Coordinator, or (319) 273-3423.  Find more information regarding Violence Intervention Services and Substance Abuse Services.
