Housed within the Division of Student Affairs, the Office of Health Promotion provides health education and prevention programming on campus to support the well-being of students. This includes prevention of sexual misconduct and relationship violence, substance abuse as well as promotion of mental and emotional health, spiritual health and physical well-being.

This program is the source of information and portal to wellness resources focused on Syracuse University’s faculty and staff, driven by data and supported by existing University assets. Its mission is to improve the health of Syracuse University’s faculty and staff and contain the direct and indirect costs associated with poor health status by focusing on health status issues and health concerns. 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.
Reduce stress and recenter every Monday with a noontime meditation at Hendricks Chapel. The meditation is held in the small chapel, which is located on the lower level of Hendricks.

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.
