Health Promotion

The mission of the Department of Health Promotion is to create a university environment supportive of student mental, physical and social health and wellbeing.  We seek to promote knowledge, understanding, skill-development, resources, and environmental strategies that support protective health behaviors and reduce personal, interpersonal, and community health risk factors.

According to the World Health Organization, health promotion involves empowering 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.
