About Us

Our Mission

The mission of the Health Promotion department is to foster a campus community that encourages positive health behaviors supportive of UC Merced students' academic success and well-being during their collegiate experience.  This is achieved by using available data and following a primary prevention philosophy in our efforts to provide health education, train student leaders, advocate for change and promote health equity.
