Health & Wellbeing Ambassadors

HWA

Health and Wellbeing Ambassadors (HWA) are students who are passionate about health and wellbeing. Working in partnership with the UNSW Health Promotion Unit they make a difference to the health and wellbeing of UNSW students through peer education, peer outreach, health promotions campaigns and communications and advocating for changes to the university environment. The program is accredited by UNSW Advantage, and volunteer contribution is recorded on AHEGS statements upon graduation. 

HWAs work with the HPU to co-design and deliver online and face-to-face health and wellbeing initiatives that are informed by student needs, perspectives and experiences. HWAs are coordinated by the HWA Executive teams who have leadership positions and are responsible for the coordination of the program.
