One of the goals of COBE is to bring together faculty, students, staff and researchers all across the university to raise awareness of college behavioral health and wellness. Below are some of the ways we have partnered with individuals and groups across VCU.

COBE was chosen as a community partner for the Center for Media and Health’s Social Media Institute for Summer 2015. Undergraduate students in the department developed a fantastic social media campaign for COBE.

COBE Director of Student Engagement Dr. Amy Adkins also presented alongside Dr. Caroline Orr and Jeanine Guidry about uses of social media in health communication at the 2016 Media and Health Symposium hosted at VCU.

COBE Director Dr. Danielle Dick introduces students to Thrive at the launch party in August of 2016.

COBE is teaming up with Residential Life and Housing to offer a wellness-focused residential experience for VCU students called Thrive. The living/learning community launches in the Fall of 2016!

With funding from the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, COBE and Spit for Science are excited to partner with the VCU Police Department, the Wellness Resource Center and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life at VCU to explore new ways to tackle underage and risky drinking.

COBE collaborates to support clubs like Active Minds at VCU host programming for students related to health and wellbeing like the Send Silence Packing event in the Spring of 2016.

In Fall 2015, our undergraduate research class will be partnering with one community organization, CARITAS, and three VCU partners: The Center for Human-Animal Interaction, The Wellness Resource Center and Residential Life and Housing.  Our students will work on research projects related to the needs of each partner.
