Organizations on Campus
The eMpowEr Project: A GW Alpha Delta Pi Initiative
1) Advocacy: Partner with GW Administration, University Counseling Center, and Student Health Services, to ensure that effective resources are available to students suffering from eating disorders. When we are able to say, “If you or a friend are suffering, here are the services provided by the administration that can help you address the problem,” then we have been successful.
2) Programming: A campaign designed to increase positive body image awareness and to educate the GW community to understand, prevent, and destigmatize eating disorders.

The Health Outreach Peer Education program is a project of the GWU Student Health Service. It is a student-run health outreach group.
Our mission is to prepare students to take part in health promotion and educational activities directed to their peers. Peer Educators help other students evaluate the risk of health-related behaviors, supply accurate information and lend support for healthy lifestyle choice
