Program Requests/Forms

Are you looking to put on a health related program?  The Wellness Advocates are a great addition to your programming needs!  We can present to your group (most popular option), help design a program, or help facilitate your discussions. If you would like to request our assistance, please fill out and return the Wellness Advocates Program Request Form. The Wellness Advocates will accept requests for virtual and in-person presentations. Zoom can serve as a backup option as well if your group cannot secure a room for the presentation, or if turns out to be  safer to hold the event online. 

After you have downloaded and completed the form, email the form to wellnessadvocates@luc.edu and you will here back regarding your request shortly.

We do ask that requests be sent at least 14 days prior to your intended program date (if possible) in order to plan accordingly.


Recruitment for our NEW peer health educator community the Wellness Wolfpack is now open! If you are interested in applying for the 2024-2025 school year please read the information below!

The Wellness Center is launching a new, collaborative peer health education community: Wellness Outreach Leaders and Facilitators Promoting Action, Change, and Knowledge (Wolfpack). The Wellness Wolfpack will lead workshops on campus and promote wellness in a number of areas, including substance use, nutrition, gender-based violence, and mental health. Members will work on a subcommittee dedicated to one of these topics. Students who are involved for more than one year will have the opportunity to apply for a paid, leadership opportunity in 2025-2026.  

Application deadline: Tuesday, April 2nd
To apply please complete this form!
In addition to your application, we ask that you submit one short letter of recommendation from a mentor or peer. This can include a supervisor, professor, advisor, or anyone who can speak to your positive qualities and passion for wellness. Please ask the person writing your recommendation to email the letter directly to Callie Powers at cpowers1@luc.edu.
We will be holding interviews April 2-12. Once we receive your application and letter of recommendation, you will receive an email to sign up for a 30 minute slot.
The Wolfpack will hold weekly subcommittee meetings, as well as a larger group meeting every other week. Group meetings will take place every other Wednesday at 4:30pm at the LSC Wellness Center. It is expected that you be present for all group meetings and all of your individual subcommittee meetings. A mandatory multi-day training will also take place in August before the start of the semester, which will include an early move-in the week of August 18th.
