Health Education

What Is Health Education?

Health Education, sometimes called Health Promotion, is a discipline dedicated to providing education through classroom presentations and experiences, interactive learning, awareness campaigns, and events to teach students about health and wellness topics. 

Our goal is to enhance student learning and personal development through health education and promotion. We strive to promote the health of the overall campus community through primary prevention and health services.

How Do We Do This?

By covering topics, such as:
  • Drugs, alcohol, and tobacco
  • Nutrition 
  • Mental health and stress
  • Relationships/relationship safety
  • Hosting STI clinics
  • Health clinics
  • Sexual health and wellness 
  • Sexual assault and bystander intervention
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Behavior/coping skills
  • Primary prevention education
  • Vaccine clinics


Health Education is dedicated to reaching LU and LIT's students through several outreach efforts.

While we are always seeking to grow this list, our current efforts and collaborative relationships include: 

Outreach Efforts and Collaborations
Wellness Packs for students in need of hygiene & health supplies* Partnering with Legacy Community Health & TAN for free STI clinics Hosting annual AFSP Out of the Darkness Walk for Suicide Prevention
Recurring Holistic Health & Wellness Fair Partnering with LIT Dental Hygiene Program to refer students for cleanings and exams Mental Health First Aid Training for Staff through Spindletop Beaumont

*If you are a faculty or staff member at the LU or LIT campus and know of a student in need, please visit this link on LUHub to refer a student for a wellness pack.
