The CWP operates from a public health model and utilizes prevention and health promotion strategies to empower students to make informed decisions about their personal health and wellbeing. Our team of multidisciplinary professionals address issues such as alcohol use, drug use, recovery from substance use disorders, sexual health, sexual and relationship violence, and a variety of other wellness topics that affect college students.
