The mission of UWF Wellness Services is to support student success through health education, promoting healthy choices, and encouraging activism. From large scale annual events like Take Back the Night to monthly outreach programs in the Residence Halls, Wellness Services is active on campus providing health promotion services in the areas of alcohol abuse & misuse prevention, sexual health promotion and sexual assault prevention. Our goal is to help UWF students avoid situations that can negatively impact their academic success and their lives. We do this in many ways and always aim to pair education with fun.
Throughout our site, you will see we offer direct services for students, staff, and faculty including Don’t Cancel Class, Residence Hall programs, condom machine stocking and delivery, video checkouts, pre-assembled and laminated bulletin board for display in residence halls or classrooms, Greek and Athlete specific programs along with programs for all student groups. We also seek to provide general topic-relevant information and have links to some of the best college health information available on the web.
Additionally, we coordinate the UWF Peer Educators student group along with the student-led Men for Violence Prevention (MVP) group. As you walk around campus, you can often find the Peer Educators out and about on the Love Bug (our golf cart) promoting important information to help their peers be successful. Check us out on our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram to keep updated on our upcoming events and outreach!
