Programs and activities offered as a part of this track have included

  • holding discussion spaces for queer folks of color
  • Presenting research and information on self-care and identity formation
  • opening dialogue on campus regarding LGBTQIA athletes
  • taking steps to make Vaden Health Center a more welcoming physical environment for a diverse student population
  • offering a "Queer Crafts" art therapy event

Weiland Health Associates

Terra Weiland Health Associate (WHA) 2020-2021

The Weiland Health Associate is a member of the Terra House Cooperative community and the Weiland Health Initiative responsible for supporting the health and wellness of Terra House residents as well as larger Stanford LGBTQ+ communities. While the WHA will be expected to prioritize the needs of the house and staff team, their programming should be open, flexible, and responsive to all community members. The bulk of their work should take the form of event programming and resource development, which may include: Terra Bites, de-stress events, coordinating CAPS counseling, arts and creation initiatives, developing topical resource guides & brochures, and collaborating with other campus organizations to promote queer and trans health and wellness. The WHA must make programming accessible to people of color, low-income people, migrants and undocumented people, disabled people and people with disabilities, women, femmes, people of all faiths, and people from any other underrepresented identities who have been historically underserved.

Expectations:

  • Advance the LGBTQ+ theme of the Terra House Cooperative and the mission of The Weiland Health Initiative
  • Attend to, and respond to, the health & wellness of Terra residents which looks like: check-ins with the RA and CM, communicating with the Residence Dean for Terra, directing residents to resources for help and support, assessing programmatic needs
  • Foster belonging and connection across LGBTQ+ communities on campus
  • Create and support gender and sexual diversity-oriented education and training across campus
  • Create wellness programming that actively engages the diversity of the house and campus queer/trans communities in response to their needs
  • Meet regularly with Weiland Health Initiative Manager and staff to coordinate Vaden/campus mental health and wellness efforts
  • Meet regularly with Terra staff to coordinate programming and community-building efforts
  • Meet regularly with fellow WHAs to collectively support the house theme
  • Actively participate in Staff Selection, and coordination of the pre-assignment process for their residence
  • Support/coordinate the process of identifying and selecting future WHAs, in conjunction with their fellow student staff members, The Weiland Health Initiative, and Residential Education
  • Organize two (2) programs each quarter to address community health & wellness needs
  • Generate, update, and disseminate campus resources – such as flyers brochures and website content – to connect queer and trans community members to health and wellness resources outside of Terra House
  • Collaborate regularly with CAPS/Vaden Health Center, the QSR, and queer/trans student organizations in addition to Weiland and Terra staff
  • Support diversity education broadly
