Our Mission

Health Promotion and Advocacy (HPA) provides inclusive health & well-being education, prevention, and survivor-centered support. HPA contributes to student academic success through the promotion of healthier behaviors. HPA strives to create a safer community by providing survivor-centered support, resources, and services to respond to the impact of gender-based violence.

We’re continuing our efforts to advance the health and safety of our Ball State community. Stay informed with the plans, resources, and updates regarding COVID-19 policies, testing, and vaccinations. You can also take the Cardinals Care Pledge to help us maintain a safe and compassionate campus culture.
