Our Team

SWITCH Campus Team

SWITCH was developed by an interdisciplinary research team of faculty and students that worked collaboratively with ISU Extension and Outreach 4-H youth program specialists to ensure that the programming would meet school needs and that it could be disseminated effectively. Content and research expertise in the Do, View, and Chew areas is provided by Iowa State University departments including Kineseology, Food Science Human Nutrition, and Psychology, while the 4-H Youth Development unit provides expertise in positive youth development.   


Advisory Team

Formed in June 2023, the SWITCH Advisory Team is comprised of school core team staff and Extension partners who provide the SWITCH campus team with guidance and recommendations to design strategies and revise content related to trainings, resources, and program implementation.
