The Wellness Center is a wellness promotion and education resource center available to all Santa Clara University students. Its main focus is on risk reduction and early intervention related to alcohol and drug use and the prevention of gender-based violence. We strive to promote student wellbeing through education, prevention, and outreach services. The Wellness Center is home to these student groups:

· The Peer Health Educators (PHE) is to provide an effective peer network to encourage, support, and advance healthful living for all SCU students. PHE’s aim to raise education and awareness around a variety of health-related topics including general wellness, eating disorders, body image, nutrition, stress management, alcohol and substance abuse, and healthy relationships.

· The Violence Prevention Program (VPP) is a peer-based organization aimed at raising awareness about dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and other forms of interpersonal violence, and providing tools for violence prevention and intervention at SCU.

· Collegiate Recovery (Broncos in Recovery)
The mission of the collegiate recovery is to provide support to students who are recovering from alcoholism and addiction as it pertains to living clean and sober at Santa Clara University. The group's traditions are rooted in Ignatian spirituality and are inspired by the mission of Santa Clara University.
