Our mission is to create, nurture, and promote a University environment supportive of healthy life-long behaviors and enhance academic and personal success. We are here to assist students in skill development that will enhance their personal wellness and ability to succeed--not only in the classroom, but in all areas of life: intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, financial, environmental, and emotional.
The CSW provides two main services: health education and victim-survivor advocacy.
- Health Education is a necessary component to achieving and maintaining personal wellness. Our health educators encourage U students to do so through engaging workshops on healthy relationships & sex, stress management, sleep hygiene, anti-violence, and low-risk drinking. We also provide direct services for students such as regular STD/HIV testing clinics and well coaching.
- Victim-Survivor Advocacy is a confidential and free service available for any U community member (students, faculty, staff) who identify as a victim or survivor of sexual or relationship violence. We operate with a victim-centered approach, committed to empowering clients through education and supportive dialogue. Services include academic adjustments, education about trauma, assistance with reporting, safety planning, referrals, etc.
