Program Requests

How do I request a SHAPE Program?

  • Please fill out the presentation request form. Once submitted, we will forward your information to the SHAPE peers educators. At our following weekly meeting we will assign someone to accommodate your request. They should confirm with you shortly after the meeting.
  • Please request your program at least two weeks in advance. We get a lot of requests, so it helps us to plan a better program for you if we know about it early.
  • SHAPE program imageYou may also call the SHAPE office at 573-882-1417 and leave a message for the SHAPE Outreach Coordinator and indicate you are requesting a program and someone will return your call within 48 hours of the request.
  • You may stop by the SHAPE office in the Health Promotion & Wellness Department in the Student Health Center, Room 0302 University Physicians Medical Bldg. (ground level)

  • Check out all our programs

SHAPE’s Policy on Tardiness

To be respectful of everyone’s time SHAPE peers will arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the program and will begin on time. If students are not organized or ready to begin on time SHAPE peers are instructed to leave and reschedule any programs for a future date. Please be there and be ready to begin at the scheduled time.
