Presentations, Trainings, and Workshops

Student Well-Being provides presentations, trainings, and workshops to organizations, classes, and other groups that request them. Requests can also be made for department presence, such as for a discussion panel, event, meeting, etc. A request for department presence does not have to be directly related to a pre-made presentation.

All requests must be made at least two weeks in advance. Special, tailor-made requests must be done one month in advance.

Depending on the presentation requested, we may schedule a consultation with you to tailor the presentation to your group's goals.



Should I choose a presentation or a support group?

Presentations would be given once, whereas support groups have more sessions.
Presentations are geared more towards a larger group of students (like Greek Life, organizations, classes, etc) at their chosen location, while support groups are ideal for students that want to discuss with a small group of their peers about a topic that they are all interested in at the Counseling office.
