ALA 240 is designed for developing leaders to integrate researched-based strategies that are not only critical for individuals, but also have a ripple effect on those around us: the community we live in, and social change in the larger world. Led by peer facilitators, this class will focus on exploring 1) leadership theory, social justice principles, and wellness competencies alongside the eight dimensions of individual and community well-being, and 2) how these intersect with college public health concerns, such as racism, alcohol and other drugs, body image, loneliness, mental health, and more. Students will gain practical experience in modeling well-being on campus and beyond. *Participants in this class will have the opportunity to apply for peer facilitator roles for future sections.
