Any student enrolled in at least 9 credits is eligible for the group.  Students are expected to commit to serving for at least one academic year. Students may remain on the committee for up to four years if they continue to meet the enrollment requirement.                                

The Health and Wellness Liaison group will meet at least once per month for a dinner or lunch meeting. Each member will be expected to attend a minimum of 75% of scheduled meetings to maintain membership.
