Peer Education Programs
TitanWELL employs and trains Cal State Fullerton students to become Certified Peer Health Educators through NASPA’s BACCHUS initiative. Our Peer Health Educators (PHEs) are able to work on various teams within our department, including our TitanWell Hut, AMOD Squad, and Nutrition Advocates. To learn more, please email TitanWELL@fullerton.edu
The TitanWELL Hut is a mobile extension of our office that provides peer-to-peer education on a variety of health topics, multiple days a week. Students who visit the hut are offered a safe, inclusive, informative, and welcoming environment in which they become empowered to make more healthful choices for themselves and to promote healthy behaviors and wellness among the CSUF student population. Our Peer Health Educators are Certified through the BACCHUS Network—an initiative of NASPA. The hut program utilizes the Transtheortical Model to identify where a student is currently, and provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to elicit change. Participants interact with our peer educators through fun, interactive games and activities, walking away with increased awareness of health topics, resources, and prizes! The hut is in a different location each day— stop by and say hello! Follow us on Instagram to see what we’re up to this week! @csuftitanwell
The SIPpers focus on reducing harm associated with these substances among students at Cal State Fullerton. Through engaging presentations and activities that involve participants, students learn strategies to make a change regarding their use of alcohol and/or marijuana. The SIPpers facilitate group workshops and presentations. Our goal is to motivate students to decrease their high-risk behavior, enabling them to increase their academic performance and their positive Titan experience.
Join our Peer Health Educators for a live cooking demo, a lesson on healthy eating, or physical activity workshop (go to the services page for details). Our Nutrition Advocates are trained to provide healthy eating and other workshops. Additionally, One on One Health and Wellness Coaching (HWC) sessions are available delivered by a certified health and wellness coach (see individual services for more information on HWC).
The Sexual Health Team makes the sometimes-taboo topic of sexual health approachable for students through inclusive presentations and outreach events. This peer education group provides presentations to students on sexually transmitted infections, birth control, safer sex, healthy relationships, and much more. Presentations are by request and can be tailored for special populations. The Sexual Health Team also organizes free HIV testing events each semester and maintains our Condom Availability Program, providing increased access to reproductive services to students.
