Mission Statement:

The mission of Student Life: Wellness and Health Advocacy is to provide students, staff and faculty with culturally competent health education, health promotion programming, alcohol and other drug education, community engagement, and partnership that supports and empowers the campus community to make choices and create lifelong habits that promote health and well-being across all dimensions. 


Cooperatively with the many academic and administrative departments at UW-La Crosse, Wellness and Health Advocacy recognizes the opportunity to contribute to an environment of professional as well as personal development, and aims to foster balanced lifestyles by which students, staff and faculty can achieve their full potential. 

As each of the individuals in the campus community is unique, with different goals, values, strengths, and experiences, so are their perceptions of and potentials for wellness. The job of Wellness and Health Advocacy is to provide tools, education, guidance, and support, and to cultivate and environment in which the potential for health flourishes.
