About Health Promotion & Advocacy

What We Do

UWM students thrive when they’re healthy. Our goal is to help students be well while studying at UWM and into the future. We lead initiatives and collaborate with campus and community partners to provide programs and services that promote well-being, support student learning and enhance the UWM experience.

Let us help you:

  • Plan a training or presentation for your student group
  • Access services to support your emotional and physical health
  • Provide a referral for a student you are concerned about
  • Obtain health education materials on a variety of health and wellness topics
  • Learn more about college health issues and trends
