Health Promotion


Skidmore's Department of Health Promotion makes information available on a wide range of health topics and is committed to providing resources that will help individuals within the Skidmore community to make responsible choices. Health Promotion:

  • offers student programming (on topics including sexuality, alcohol and other drugs, nutrition, stress management, relationships, eating disorders, body image and others);
  • provides one-on-one consultations;
  • coordinates employee trainings and workshops related to health;
  • conducts health assessments and research on campus; and
  • offers health-related academic courses.


Programs run through Health Promotion include:

  • Peer health educators: students committed to promoting healthy choices and lifestyles through educating and empowering themselves and their peers on a variety of health related topics
  • BASICS: an assessment and education program about alcohol and/or other drugs, available to all Skidmore students. BASICS is designed to help you, the student, examine your drinking and/or drug use behavior in an judgment-free environment. It is not an abstinence-only program.
  • Social Norms Campaign: An awareness campaign that aims to correct misperceptions students have around alcohol and other drug use at Skidmore.
  • The Source: A helpful tool to assist students in connecting to peers with similiar interests. It also provides a calendar with events occuring on campus and in town.
