Wellness & Prevention Services
Our campus culture places an emphasis on primary prevention practices and informed decision making to help reduce the need for intervention or treatment. Wellness and prevention services, like sexual health promotion and alcohol and other drug services, are designed to support that goal.
Peers on Wellness
Peers On Wellness (POW) is a student leadership program devoted to promoting health and educating fellow Babson students on a range of wellness topics. POWs are fellow Babson students who are advised by the Wellness & Prevention Services staff. They offer several programs throughout the year designed to help you prioritize your personal health and wellness so you can successfully achieve all your goals.
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services (SAPRS) offers empowerment-based and trauma-informed violence prevention and intervention services for Babson students. Get free and confidential consultations by appointment or during walk-in hours. You can use consultations to seek support or referrals and/or discuss concerns for friends, partners, and family members.
Sexual Health Promotion
A comprehensive, culturally inclusive, evidence-based program, Sexual Health Promotion at Babson offers a range of services, including free-of-charge safer sex supplies for students available in mulitple locations around campus. If you’re sexually active, you also have the option to get tested for sexually trasmitted infections. Health Services also can discuss and prescribe contraceptives, such as oral contraceptives (birth control pill).
Alcohol and Other Drug Services
Dedicated to reducing the negative consequences associated with high-risk drinking and other forms of substance misuse, Alcohol and Other Drug Services (AODS) offers a range of services, including free and confidential consultations by appointment. AODS supports all students, including Babson’s non-drinker community and students in recovery from substances.
