Health Promotion & Wellness
The mission of SF State University’s Health Promotion & Wellness (HPW) unit is to achieve health equity and enhance academic, personal, and professional success for all members of the SF State community. Using a socio-ecological perspective and practicing with cultural humility, we aim to positively shift culture and social norms around health and wellness and to increase students’ self-efficacy to make informed health decisions. Our team is made up of health educators who focus on areas including sexual health, mental health, alcohol and other drugs, sexual violence prevention, men’s health issues, nutrition, and overall health and wellness. We coordinate the Health Promotion & Wellness Peer Health Internship and Ambassador programs which support the development of campus leaders who partner with us in addressing the health needs of our SF State community. Other HPW program and events include: sexual violence prevention education trainings, CalFresh enrollment assistance, Late Night “Turn Up!” social events, and Tobacco Free Tuesdays. HPW is located in the Village Center, 750 Font Boulevard. Online information and resources related to health and wellness can be found at wellness.sfsu.edu.
