Health Promotion

We support a holistic approach to the health and wellness of students, faculty, staff, and community members. We frequently partner with campus-wide departments to offer educational programming and prevention services, while creating and building community. Our prevention and educational approach to health and wellness focuses on changing behaviors, healthy lifestyle choices, and creating a unified culture to educate the campus community on the lifelong benefits of maintaining a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.

We strive to empower the university community to make informed decisions and develop skills that enhance well-being, to foster a campus environment in which employees and students thrive intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically by developing collaborative relationships and educational outreach.
