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.
The Office of Health Promotion addresses priority health issues on campus. 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.
Assessment and evaluation are at the core of our work. We ground our initiatives and programs in research and evaluation that ensure these efforts are needed, relevant, and effective. In addition to ongoing assessment of our various initiatives, we adminster the National College Health College Health Assessment to inform our health promotion efforts.
