CC offers a variety of wellness programs for students. To begin, the Wellness Resource Center coordinates and integrates efforts to promote health and prevent health problems, including education of campus constituents on a range of wellness-related topics, such as healthy relationships, healthy sexual engagement, alcohol and other substance use and abuse, mental health and life balance. Furthermore, Boetcher Health Center offers students six counseling sessions free of charge.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers assistance to employees, spouses & dependent children (two and under) dealing with marital and family problems, anxiety and depression, chemical dependency & co-dependency, grief and loss, job stress, co-worker conflict, child and elder care, financial and legal services, identity theft and fraud resources, and referral services.
Furthermore, Pinnacol Assurance, CC's worker's compensation benefit provider, has resources to perform ergonomic evaluations throughout campus and make recommendations for an employees workstation. In addition, Colorado College has partnered with Cigna (its medical provider) to offer the on-site biometric health screenings in the fall and spring, on-line health risk assessment surveys, and other wellness information that is available on their website. Finally, CC offers wellness workshops (i.e., Laughter Yoga, Being Fit at Your Desk, etc.) during working hours and at lunch to all employees.
