Learn About Our Program
By creating and sharing digital materials, UD Protect the Flock Student Wellbeing Ambassadors will help reduce their peers’ risk of COVID-19 infection by encouraging student engagement in protective factors (such as mask wearing), self-advocacy (such as sticking to party-size limits), and other UD community health efforts (such as completing the daily symptom checker).
Under the supervision of Student Wellness and Health Promotion (SWHP), the primary responsibility of a Protect the Flock Student Wellbeing Ambassador is to design, implement and facilitate engaging educational content related to COVID-19 harm reduction to meet the needs of a diverse UD student community during the pandemic.
