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.

OHP partners with Rollins School of Public Health to hire Graduate Assistants through the Rollins Learn and Earn Program (REAL). Graduate Assistants support the mission of the Office of Health Promotion by implementing programs and initiatives that focus on behavior change and harm reduction in several areas, including (but not limited to) sexual health, alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse prevention, mental well-being, stress and sleep. They assist the OHP team using evidence-informed practices in the fields of public health and student affairs that are designed to promote healthy behaviors and decision making across the campus community, as well as promote positive social change.

Positions and duties vary by academic year and applications are accepted through the REAL program in August each year. 

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.

 

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. 

 

Proposal ideas may center on projects or programs which: 

  • Increase positive and protective sexual health behaviors

  • Decrease stress and other negative influences on mental well-being

  • Promote healthy sleep practices

  • Build resilience or ability to deal with challenges

  • Advance well-being around diversity, equity, and inclusion

  • Shift campus culture around alcohol and  substance use

  • Or otherwise improve health and well-being on Emory’s campus


Application coming soon – launching Spring 2022. Please consider these things beforehand:

  • What your idea is and how it would impact the Emory community.

  • A budget for your idea and if you are receiving supplemental income from other sources.

  • A timeline for the implementation of this idea.

  • How you plan to evaluate the success of your project/program.


For any and all questions, please email OHP@emory.edu.
