The mission of the Wellness Center is to promote positive health behaviors, prevent negative consequences associated with high-risk behavior, and encourage the social connections that support student success.
A core value of the Wellness Center is that educational programs and services are developed through the application of scientific evidence and relevant research. The four pillars of the Wellness Strategic Plan are:
1) To provide a comprehensive program of individual and environmental approaches to reduce negative consequences associated with the misuse of alcohol, marijuana and other substances.
2) To provide exemplary power-based personal violence prevention, education and response services.
3) To promote positive mental health and suicide prevention.
4) To provide education and resources that promotes positive health behaviors.
The Wellness Center embraces social marketing. We not only want to make others aware of issues on alcohol, drugs, sexual responsibility, and power-based personal violence, but we also make a key effort to lead others to more healthful behaviors. Through coordinated efforts in health promotion and prevention strategies, the Wellness Center program strives to enhance the overall health of the campus and community.
