Office of Health Promotion

UHS Health Promotion

Our aim is to help UT students get and stay healthy

A student's health and their ability to thrive academically are closely linked. The Office of Health Promotion (OHP) supports the mission of University Health Services by offering programs that help prevent health conditions or health-related behaviors from being a barrier to a student's academic and personal success.

Our evidence-based approach includes multi-level prevention strategies such as peer education, health education, social marketing, social norms initiatives, environmental change strategies, and strategic campus partnerships.

A Focus on Data

In addition to ongoing assessment of our various initiatives, we adminster the National College Health College Health Assessment to inform our health promotion efforts.
