Student Wellness and Health Promotion (SWHP)

SWHP provides services to support students’ behavioral and emotional wellness, and helps students evaluate options for maintaining healthy lifestyles through prevention, intervention and education.

To help students develop their wellness foundation through education and practice, we provide guidance through large-scale events, small group workshops, in-class presentations, reading materials and online activities. Robust content equips Blue Hens for individual and community wellness.

SWHP builds and maintains diverse partnerships with on- and off-campus resources, while working to engage all members of our UD community to make this campus a healthier, more well place to be.
