Lauretta Perry
Continuous Service

Since UMD Health Services hired her in July 2004, to lead the department’s Health Education unit, Lauretta Perry has worked tirelessly, both on campus and in the community, to address health issues – particularly those pertaining to alcohol and chemical dependency. She not only develops and oversees all health education campaigns across campus, she also manages the student organization, Peer Health Educators. She chairs UMD’s Chemical Health Action Committee, oversees the student alcohol assessment program, teaches alcohol-related Introduction to Classroom Learning classes, and gives alcohol presentations to UMD athletic teams and Recreational Sports clubs. And that’s just some of her reach ON campus. It doesn’t begin to address her oversight of the Health Services Department’s health and wellness initiative or other projects. Off-campus, Lauretta also manages community-based alcohol outreach programming (including local high schools and community colleges) and serves as the UMD Better Neighbors liaison.

To best meet the needs and schedules of others, Lauretta often selflessly dedicates her evening and weekend time to her educational and outreach programs. She takes the time and makes the effort to understand the current student culture so that, when proposing new campus alcohol initiatives, she does so through their eyes and it is relevant. She is truly a dedicated, enthusiastic and caring professional.
