We have a network of Peer Educators who facilitate wellness presentations and health promotion on campus. Presentations and events include topics in the areas of alcohol and other drug prevention, mental well-being promotion, public health, nutrition and fitness, sexual health, sexualized violence prevention, and healthy relationships, as well as the Miner Support Network and STEP UP! for Bystander Intervention programs.
Join the Joe's PEERS student leadership organization! Joe's PEERS promote health and wellness by providing education, encouragement, and resources to Missouri S&T Students.
Peer Wellness Educators (PWEs) assist the wellness staff and serve as a leader for the Joe's PEERS on implementing and planning educational projects, primary prevention programs, social norms campaigns, and awareness campaigns.
The Miner Support Network is a campus organization that works to de-stigmatize mental health through confidential, weekly, peer-facilitated groups, while holistically working to create an inclusive community dedicated to empathy, trust, and relationship building through network-wide stress-busting events.
ProjectConnect is a fun, 6-session peer-led program now being offered on campus aimed at helping students build social connections and community on campus. Students meet in groups of 4-6 over the course of six 1-hour sessions, and engage in a series of thought-provoking questions and fun activities, ending with a group event. Sign ups are at the beginning of each semester.
