Health and Wellness

Classroom-based teaching and learning is at the center of what we do at Boston University Academy. Increasingly, however, we know that first-rate teaching and learning cannot happen without the thoughtful pairing of student support resources. This extends to advising, social-emotional support, and student health and wellness.

Throughout the year, BUA partners with offices and department at Boston University as well as with outside practitioners to facilitate workshops for both students and parents on:

  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Sexual education
  • Stress
  • Sleep
  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Time management
  • And more

In 2017-2018, BUA promoted health and wellness through the following opportunities:

  • Workshops for students and parents on drug education and stress with practitioner Will Slotnick
  • Planned Parenthood Sexual Health Workshops
  • Workshop on stress facilitated by BU’s Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders
  • Exercise and fitness activities with BU’s Fitness and Recreation staff
  • Stress Buddy Workshop with BU’s Office of Wellness and Prevention
  • Presentation on eating well and healthy choices by BU Sargent Choice Nutrition Center
