Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behavior towards a wide range of social and environmental interventions. - World Health Organization (WHO)
The mission of the Center for Health Promotion is to support Ithaca College students in developing the skills and identifying the resources necessary for making healthy lifestyle choices. The Center utilizes evidence-based tools and personalized information to empower students to make their own decisions for optimizing their wellbeing. The Center's primary content areas include harm reduction for alcohol and other drug use, building resiliency, and finding balance in order to thrive during college and beyond.
The Center for Health Promotion is located on the lower (basement) level of Hammond Health Center, just down the hallway from CAPS. (Our physical space is currently closed, and services are being offered remotely via Zoom). The Center is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
