Student Engagement

There are many ways in which students may get experience working on health and well-being issues on campus. The Office of Health Promotion offers students unpaid internship, volunteer, and practicum experiences. In addition, the office employs undergraduate students and graduate assistants. Finally, the Office of Health Promotion Advisory Council provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to advise the staff on the office’s strategic initiatives.

If you are a graduate student looking for practicum opportunities, reach out to a member of the team whose work aligns with your interests.
Our office has two undergraduate student assistants. Please contact a member of the team for more information on student employment opportunities.

Graduate Assistant for Health Promotion Communication

Graduate Assistant for Evaluation

Graduate Assistant for Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD)

The purpose of the Office of Health Promotion Advisory Council is to provide insight to the staff on the development, planning, and implementation of health and well-being programs and campus policies;  to ensure that OHP’s priorities are consistent with and inform the missions of Emory University and Emory University’s Division of Campus Life; to facilitate communication between students and OHP; and  to serve as advocates and ambassadors for the OHP’s mission of creating a healthy campus where students embrace health and well-being as a necessary contributor to their success at Emory University and beyond.

The Advisory Council is made up of undergraduate and graduate students and meets once per month throughout the academic year.

To apply to be a member of the Advisory Council, send your resume and a letter of interest to Arbre'ya Lewis at by December 19th, 2019. 


This program was created because the Office of Health Promotion recognizes that students have creative, innovative ideas about how to improve well-being on campus. We are offering mini-grants to make those ideas become reality by and for Emory students.* You can apply for a mini-grant up to $500 to fund your idea for a project or program.
