Wellness & Prevention Services
Welcome to the Department of Wellness and Prevention Services! It is our mission to serve all students through the promotion of healthy behaviors, risk behavior modification services, and advocacy for campus-wide health policies that facilitate student success and holistic well-being. We offer services promoting health awareness and active lifestyles while taking a holistic approach to wellness, encompassing eight dimensions:
Dimensions of Holistic Wellness
In order to promote these eight dimensions of wellness, the Department of Wellness and Prevention Services offers educational programs on topics such as nutrition, sexual health, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, stress, and sleep. The Department hosts events designed to empower students about the importance of self-care. We also offer a variety of individual and group services for students to help them maintain wellness throughout their college careers. Individual therapy, nutrition assessment and a resource library are just some of the many services offered to students.
