EIM-OC Student Leaders

Student leaders are an integral part of the EIM-OC leadership team and represent the student voice on campus. They are the champions of the EIM-OC movement! Student leaders are role models to others around them, passionately promoting physical activity to their peers. Student leaders wear many hats, though their primary responsibilities are to help design and lead awareness campaigns and events, as well as to participate in community outreach programs, both within the Elon community and the surrounding areas. Student leaders may also be involved with EIM-related research focused on the assessment and promotion of physical activity at Elon. Applicants are welcome from any background and/or major and will bring the knowledge and values of EIM into their future practices and careers. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical experience in health education and health promotion.
