OFFICE OF HEALTH PROMOTION

Two smiling students sit together with one holding her finger up in a Villanova "V".

Welcome!

Our mission is to provide evidence-based health resources, facilitate opportunities for students to build skills to make healthy lifestyle choices, and to instill a sense of personal responsibility for individual health and its impact on the health of the community.

 

 

Logo representing the six dimensions of health

The Office of Health Promotion is a resource and referral hub for information on topics stretching the six dimensions of health and well-being: Social, Physical, Intellectual, Cultural, Emotional, and Spiritual.

Health Promotion staff members consult with students on the latest information on college health and well-being, and develop programs and educational opportunities for students. Peer educators are trained to provide peer-to-peer programs on alcohol and other drugs, sexual violence, sexual health, nutrition, and fitness.

The Office of Health Promotion works closely with the University Counseling Center and Student Health Center to ensure students are aware of the resources and services available to them as members of the Villanova community.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 we are providing services virtually. To connect directly to Health Promotion staff members, e-mailĀ healthbytes@villanova.edu, call 610-519-7407 or visit the Thrive 365 portal from MyNova. In-person services will be provided if appropriate, so please do not hesitate to reach out!
