Wellness Coaching Best Practice: A Comparative Analysis of CU-Boulder’s Peer Wellness Coaching (PWC) Program

Program: Health and Wellness Management
Host Company: University of Colorado Boulder - Health Promotion Department
Location: Boulder, Colorado (onsite)
Student: Matthew Cooper

This Capstone Project allowed me to work alongside the professional and student staff within CU-Boulder’s Health Promotion Department, while also conducting research on the department’s Peer Wellness Coaching (PWC) Program. Through a comparative best practice analysis and a literature review on a variety of related topics (peer wellness coaching, outreach, virtual wellness, and resilience), I was able to analyze qualitative and quantitative metrics to see if the program aligned with other best practice university programs.
