The staff in Outreach Education foster students' academic and personal success by increasing discussion, examining issues and exploring the underlying contexts of key health behaviors. Our aim is to support and encourage the university community and individual students to think critically about healthy decision-making. Our objective is to prepare individuals and groups to take meaningful action to reduce negative, and increase positive, health-related behavior. This objective is accomplished through individual consultation, prevention efforts, and educational outreach to the university community.
