Heath Promotion

We envision a community of students, faculty and staff who make thoughtful and responsible decisions in regard to their overall wellness leading to enhanced well-being for people, places, and the planet.

The Health Promotion Office empowers students to live healthy lifestyles through education, prevention work, and advocacy efforts within all six dimensions of wellness. These outreach efforts empower students to become independent, responsible, and thoughtful leaders.

The Office engages with all community members to develop moral courage, social responsibility, and healthy decision-making to create a respectful and safe living-learning environment.
