Environmental Health & Safety
The Office of Environmental Health and Safety provides technical support, information and training; consultation and periodic audits of environmental, health and safety practices; and regulatory compliance in four broad areas: workplace safety, chemical safety, radiation safety, and biosafety and sanitation.
Health-Related Student Initiatives
If you are interested in health-related issues around campus, or want to explore a healthy lifestyle with others who share your interests, consider getting involved in a student group. By entering keyword “health” in the student group directory, you can explore the various student groups that focus on medical and health topics.
University Health Services coordinates a number of peer groups. Peer Health Advisers (PHAs) work to raise awareness, facilitate health-related programming on campus, and serve as a resource for students on a wide variety of health issues. SHARE Peers plan activities, programs, and events to raise awareness on campus about sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking, and facilitate access to confidential resources.
