Health Promotion (formerly Community Health) provides outreach, and education on a variety of health topics. We collaborate with student groups and campus departments in providing programs and services that positively influence student health. Our workshops are delivered upon request to student groups or organizations and in the residence halls.
The National College Health Assessment (NCHA) survey identified stress, getting sick, sleep, anxiety, depression, internet use, relationships, ADHD and alcohol and other drug use as the top health issues impacting CU students. At Health Promotion, our services encompass stress, illness prevention, sleep, alcohol and other drug use, sexual health, nutrition, social and emotional wellness, and self-image.
Our multi-level approach includes peer education, health education, social marketing, social norms initiatives, environmental change strategies, and strategic campus partnerships.
Our initiatives and programs include:
Located in UMC 411, the Health Promotion Resource Center provides a wealth of information on a wide variety of health and wellness topics. Free safer sex and illness prevention supplies and a health resource library are also available.
