We are committed to making our campus and community a healthy one. With a goal to end chronic, preventable disease we want to work with partners who are engaged in programming that addresses physical activity, nutrition and mental wellness.
We want to highlight your Healthy Monday campaigns and initiatives on our website and social media. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what Healthy Monday Syracuse activities or events are happening in your office, organization or community.

Office of Health Promotion
Housed within the Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience, the Office of Health Promotion works to advance students’ holistic well-being and academic success to a healthy Syracuse University environment. We partner with the Office of Health Promotion to create initiatives that encourage a balanced lifestyle and support students during their time at Syracuse University.
University Wellness Initiative
The Syracuse University Wellness Initiative aims to positively impact the health and lives of the faculty and staff of Syracuse University. The department coordinates events and programs and provides resources to support Syracuse University employees in being their best. Healthy Monday Syracuse partners closely with the University Wellness Initiative to ensure that staff and faculty have the resources they need to improve and maintain good health on campus. We also collaborated with the University Wellness Initiative and other stakeholders across campus in the development of a University-wide tobacco-free campus policy, which went into effect on July 1, 2015.
Hendricks Chapel is home to Healthy Monday Syracuse’s weekly Monday mediation. Our partnership gives students and employees a place to ease their mind unwind to support their mental health. Meditation has been shown to lower stress, improve mood and cognitive function, and boost overall wellbeing.
Healthy Monday Syracuse also partners with the Contemplative Collaborative, a community of students, faculty and staff engaged in contemplative practices, teaching strategies, and scholarly research, with a goal of cultivating focused attention to foster insight and deepened understanding of complex issues. The Contemplative Collaborative bridges student and academic life to embody engaged learning, mindful academy and a compassionate society.
Health Services provides student-centered ambulatory care services. Through Quit and Stay Quit Monday, resources are available at health services for students who wish to become tobacco-free. Health Services can help you make a plan to quit smoking, assist with decisions about using medications that suit you best, and they will provide ongoing support through the cessation process. Call 315-443-9005 to schedule an appointment to talk with a healthcare provider.
The Office of Residence Life at Syracuse University creates residential communities where living and learning experiences prepare students to pursue their life goals by fostering safety, learning, inclusivity, community and engaged citizenship.
