If you are passionate about health and wellness and want to engage in the work with HPaW, there are ways in which you can do so. Opportunities exist at both the student and staff levels. 

Red Watch Band

Students can become trained to facilitate the Red Watch Band Bystander Intervention Training (RWB) and help educate their peers about how to identify and intervene effectively in an alcohol-related emergency. Students who attend the full-day training will gain the knowledge and skills to offer RWB to other Northwestern students and student groups. Student facilitators will receive continued support from Health Promotion and Wellness staff following this training, including regular meetings to discuss opportunities and challenges, as well as support with program scheduling and delivery.

Facilitator training typically occurs during Winter Quarter. If you are interested in becoming a Red Watch Band student facilitator, registration information will be shared in the PawPrint leading up to this time. Questions can be directed to HPaW at 


Student Involvement
Students who have been part of a ResilientNU cohort may apply to become a facilitator or board member. Contact for more information.

Staff Involvement
All ResilientNU cohorts are co-facilitated by an NU student and an NU staff member. ResilientNU holds cohorts that can be open to all students or exclusive to certain communities and identities, such as cohorts for Black students, LGBTQ+ students, First Generation/Lower Income students, and so on! NU staff and faculty members are welcome to reach out to HPaW at if you are interested in helping co-facilitate an identity-based cohort!
