Kent State of Wellness Student Ambassador Program

Looking to get more involved on your campus? Looking for a way to have a positive impact on the overall health and wellness of students, faculty, and staff? We may have just what you’re looking for!

Kent State of Wellness is a University-Level Initiative to promote health and wellness across the entire university system with a focus on eight key areas: Alcohol & Other Drug Use, Mental Health, Nutrition, Physical Activity, Preventive Care, Safety, Sexual Health, and Smoking & Tobacco Use.

We strive to create a healthy environment and to prioritize the health and wellness of our community. This University-Level Initiative will foster a culture of health and wellness for students and employees at all Kent State campuses. This is where YOU come in!

KSOW Student Ambassadors will spread information about the programs and resources for health and well-being across the entire Kent system. If you have questions about the program, please contact Akanimo Akpan (Graduate Assistant for Kent State of Wellness) at
