We are, however, required by law to report life-threatening situations and certain communicable diseases to the Public Health Department.
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.

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.
