The Application Process
Membership is extended to individuals selected through a process which includes an online written application, an interview, and the successful completion of the 3-credit course EDUC 350: Peer Health Education. You may begin your online application here. After we review your written application, you will be notified via email if you received an interview. After interviewing, we will notify students selected to join HOPE before Spring registration begins and grant them permission to enroll in EDUC 350.
Before enrolling in the Peer Education course, members are asked to commit to two semesters of active participation in HOPE. Active Members are expected to attend weekly meetings, present outreach programs, present Extended Orientation programs to incoming students, and participate in the planning and implementation of campus awareness events. Once in the organization, students are expected to complete seven to eight hours of HOPE-related work throughout each semester.
