Health Education and Promotion

What Do We Do?

Health Education and Promotion uses a health equity lens to foster environments, institutional practices and a campus culture that promote student well-being and academic success.


Student health and well-being intentionally embedded throughout UC Davis.


  • Evidence-Informed Action: We apply a public health approach to ensure that all of our activities are as effective as possible.
  • Social Justice: We center students who experience marginalization to advocate for initiatives that promote the best health outcomes for all students.
  • Student-Centricity: We involve students in all efforts to ensure that our initiatives are relevant to their lived experiences.
  • CollaborationWe build relationships with campus and community partners to embed health and wellness in all campus policies and practices.
  • Trauma-Informed PracticeWe acknowledge that many students have experienced trauma, and we strive to fully integrate this awareness into policies, procedures and practices to actively resist retraumatization.
