Innovation Expo - Peer Wellness Coaching: Improving Belongingness & Retention at St. Cloud State
From Stephen Kelly
Peer Wellness Coaching is a free service that offers all students at St. Cloud State University an opportunity to discuss their personal goals in a collaborative and encouraging environment. Peer Wellness Coaching provides a way for students to connect with a peer and learn of campus resources available to them. This connection increases their sense of belonging and overall health and wellness. Peer Wellness Coaches are graduate students from a variety of disciplines, including: Social Work, Rehabilitation and Addiction Counseling, College Counseling and Student Development, and Higher Education Administration who are specially trained in Motivational Interviewing.
