Wellness Education and Prevention Services

St John’s is dedicated to being one of the healthiest college campuses in America.

The mission of the Wellness Education team is to help you create a Wellness Kit that includes the most effective strategies for balanced living. We want to put the information you need to make healthy choices into your hands.

We know that being healthy and being successful go hand in hand. This is a time for you to learn what it takes to care for yourself not only during college but for the rest of your life.  

There are many aspects to wellness. Our team of top professionals is a resource you can count on to help you create a balanced and healthy lifestyle that will enhance your St. John’s experience.

Wellness Education Team

We engage with students and collaborate with other University departments to develop and deliver programs, events, and services that  increase awareness of issues that most relate to students’ well being. Members of the professional staff are also available to address classes, clubs, and other organizations.

Bystander Intervention

We need your help. Join the bystander intervention movement on campus and make your community a safer place. Attend a bystander intervention workshop to be equipped to intervene in a harmful situation while keeping yourself and your friends safe. It’s On Us, all of us, to be a part of the solution.

Join us for these awareness-raising events:

  • Take Back the Night: Come get inspired. Join other students who will literally shout, “Take Back the Night”, and will no longer feel afraid of gender violence!
  • Turn Off the Violence Week: In honor of those who have survived violence we hang the clothesline project on the great lawn.  This exhibit demonstrates the prevalence of these crimes, as well as provides hope as we join our voices to speak up for change.
