Health Promotion Services

Mission:

Health Promotion Services works to create and sustain a healthy campus environment at Texas State . We strive to promote healthy behaviors and provide tools for students to succeed personally and academically.

Goals:

1.   Provide medically accurate and research-informed health services, programs and presentations.

2.   Provide mentorship to cultivate peer educators as leaders and advocates for violence prevention and health promotion.

3.   Collaborate with on and off-campus stakeholders to enhance best practice health promotion and develop future partnerships.

4.   Utilize an intersectional lens to inform health promotion and violence prevention efforts.

The prevention and educational services offered address a variety of health issues, including violence, nutrition, stress and time management, sexual health, alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. Our services include educational materials, outreach presentations, special events and health consulting. Our health promotion team consists of professionally trained health educators, peer health educators and support staff working together to achieve the learning mission of the university.
