Agents of Change
The “Agents of Change Empowerment Certification Program” is a collaborative, multidisciplinary, community intervention that integrates concepts of health and wellness, cognitive behavioral therapy, life coaching, motivational interviewing, psychoeducation, multicultural counseling, community psychology, and group therapy.
It is a multi-disciplinary weekly outreach group run by CAPS, in collaboration with EOF, to empower students to reach their personal, academic, and professional goals. It is co-sponsored and supported by several departments across campus, including Service Learning, Student Leadership Programs, the Dean of Students Office, Equity and Diversity, and Health Promotion.
The Agents of Change curriculum is focused on building life skills, goal setting, and being a successful student and leader; health/wellness psychoeducation; personal/life/academic coaching; and mentorship/networking/leadership skills.
The program consists of 8 weekly sessions, co-facilitated by a CAPS therapist and EOF counselor, combining guest speakers across disciplines throughout campus, small and large group activities, skills training, goal setting, and developing action plans for success. It culminates in a certification ceremony and networking reception, learning about potential student positions on campus, making connections, and increasing access to potential future mentors.
