Peers Advocating Wellness for Students

About PAWS

PAWS (Peers Advocating Wellness for Students) is Butler's peer health education group. Peer education means students learning from other students; PAWS members are trained student volunteers who care about the health and wellbeing of their fellow students. PAWS actively seeks to educate the Butler community about important wellness topics including healthy relationships, sexual health, body image and eating disorders, and stress management.

PAWS is an affiliate group of the NASPA Health, Safety and Wellbeing Initiatives
