Health Promotion & Education

Wellness provides comprehensive health education programs for students that impact overall well-being and support a healthy learning environment. We frequently partner with other college departments, Tulsa community agencies as well as national organizations to offer a variety of health education programs, trainings and presentations. Please contact us for partnering opportunities or specific event information.

Health Promotion: The Ottawa Charter defines this as “. . . the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. To reach a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, an individual or group must be able to identify and to realize aspirations, to satisfy needs, and to change or cope with the environment. Health is, therefore, seen as a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.”

Health education is any combination of learning experiences designed to help individuals and communities improve their health by increasing knowledge, influencing motivation and improving health literacy.

Stay Well TCC Campaign

The Stay Well TCC Campaign was created by Wellness Services to encourage the TCC community to stay well during the pandemic. While protecting yourself and others from the virus is very important, staying well during a pandemic also takes the shape of self-care and mental health support.

How to be a part of it:

The Courage Campaign

The Courage Campaign was a call to action to transform the campus culture regarding mental health. This dedicated movement raised awareness, reduced stigma, provided resources and connection, as well as helped students feel confident to talk about mental health.

Tobacco Free TCC

Tulsa Community College prohibits smoking or the use of tobacco products on all property owned, leased or contracted for use by Tulsa Community College.

This includes:

  • Classrooms and Laboratories
  • Work Areas and Offices

  • Restrooms and Hallways
  • Side Walks and Parking Lots
  • Entrances and Green Spaces

JED Campus

In the Fall of 2017, TCC received funding to become a JED Campus. JED Campus is a nationwide initiative to help colleges and universities support students’ well-being; the name “Jed” is in memory of a young man who died by suicide while he was in college. The program provides schools with a comprehensive framework and customized feedback to strengthen mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention programs.
