The mission of the Department of Health Promotion is to engage students to develop life-long behaviors for mental, physical and social well-being and advance systemic resources for student health. We seek to create a supportive environment through inclusive health programming, advocacy and outreach to further the intellectual vision of Elon University.
According to the World Health Organization, health promotion is enabling individuals to take control of their health and its determinants. At Elon, we know that health has many components and we work toward providing holistic resources and information to students, faculty and staff. Below are examples of Elon’s health promotion programs and initiatives.
