Safer Sex Fest
Using the theme of outer space, Safer Sex Fest is an event that creates an engaging and safe environment for students to gain answers to questions like: What is consent? What does a healthy relationship look like? What are my risks for STI’s? and much more! This event supports the Violence Against Women Act and the Clery Act. Safer Sex Fest is fun, educational and encourages sex positivity, consent, and healthy relationships!
We have reimagined peace as a proactive knowledge and skill set that lends itself to positive action. Please join the movement and gain the ability to effectively intervene to support the individual, group, community or yourself. Look for the logo around campus to join us in supporting events that promote peace!
National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week (NCAAW)
In partnership with UIC faculty and staff, the Wellness Center is happy to bring you a 5-minute presentation about the importance of responsible drinking. Every year, we present to thousands of UIC students in their classrooms. This program would not be possible without the enormous support of UIC faculty and staff.
The Wellness Center witches appear every year and leave you with a poem and treat to remind you to be responsible at Halloween. Look for us around campus towards the end of October!
The Pop-Up Pantry is held monthly for students that are experiencing food insecurity. Each year we give away over a thousand bags of food to UIC students in need. For detailed information about the UIC Pop-Up Pantry please visit the “resources” tab.
Breast Health Awareness
Early intervention is key in all areas of wellness, but especially in the detection of breast cancer. Our breast cancer awareness event and workshop promotes early detection and teaches the fundamentals of breast care for both men and women.
