Penn State Altoona Health Advisory Board
A Campus/Community Health and Wellness Framework
The HAB Steering Committee:
Student wellness is a precondition for student success. With this in mind, the Health Advisory Board Steering Committee will oversee a campus-wide coordinated and comprehensive effort to support student health and wellness. The Health Advisory Board considers the physical, socio-cultural, intellectual/academic, spiritual and environmental aspects of the student experience and development as it seeks to advance health and wellness across the campus. The Steering Committee is supported in this activity by the input of three separate but complementary working groups on the prevention of alcohol and other drug abuse, depression and suicide, and sexual assault/violence. The Steering Committee drives the strategic direction and vision for the work groups, provides guidance for policy and environmental change, and provides oversight related to the evaluation of outcomes.
