There are significant opportunities for health enhancement through the use of appropriate and science-based (i.e., best practice) approaches to health promotion. Student Health Promotion takes a population-based approach in its health promotion efforts to ensure that appropriate prevention activities occur across the continuum of wellness. This population-based approach typically focuses on the first tier of prevention, referred to as primary prevention (i.e., education), although in some instances secondary prevention (i.e., intervention) is appropriate and utilized. The population-based approach to health promotion also includes sensitivity to issues of social justice, race, gender, culture, religion, sexual orientation, individual differences and efforts to broaden student engagement across the campus.
