UW Wellness Center Receives Campus Prevention Network Seal of Prevention

For the third consecutive year, the University of Wyoming’s Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center has received the Campus Prevention Network (CPN) Seal of Prevention from Vector Solutions for its commitment to student wellness.

The CPN Seal of Prevention is awarded to institutions of higher education that have demonstrated leadership in digital prevention programming focused on student safety, well-being and inclusion.

Each recipient of the CPN Seal of Prevention has taken action to create a safer, more inclusive campus through comprehensive, evidence-based digital prevention education on issues such as sexual assault, alcohol use, mental health and discrimination. The award establishes guidelines for discerning quality online prevention education and implementation practices and positions prevention as central to key institutional outcomes.

The courses evaluated for the CPN Seal of Prevention are managed at UW through the HOPES Program. HOPES stands for Healthy Options for the Prevention and Education of Substances. The organization takes a positive approach and focuses on harm reduction.

“We are once again honored to have received this recognition for the third year in a row,” says Aleah Biertzer, HOPES Program coordinator at Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center. “While this award highlights our digital prevention programming, our comprehensive approach to prevention is supported by many campus and community partners.”
