Health Promotion understands the impact of student health on academic performance and strives to enhance the social, physical and emotional well being of the diverse student body. Health Promotion is committed to providing services that are designed to develop healthy behaviors and prevent health concerns that may interfere with academic and personal success.
Health Promotion provides education, outreach and advocacy to enhance the health of all students, faculty and staff. This is accomplished through advances in health promotion theory and research, excellence in health education practices and the promotion of public policies conducive to health.
Peer Advocacy at the Drop In Center is a major component of Health Promotion. Peer Advocates are student volunteers who have been trained to provide peer education, referral and health advocacy services to other students. Our volunteers bring a first-hand perspective to current health and social issues. Peer Advocates help develop and implement new initiatives in order to execute programs they recognize as critical to the campus and to help others foster healthy lifestyle choices. They promote social change on campus by providing workshops, discussion groups, information and materials, and someone to talk to about health and social issues. Their actions are all in an effort to create an actively healthy change for the campus community. Peer Advocates are an energetic and diverse group of students who are committed to making a difference for the campus community.
We provide students with the knowledge, tools, and resources to make informed decisions about their health.
