As a resident assistant, your role is support and advise the residents living in your community. The Office of Health Promotion is here to support you.
We have many resources to help your residents stay healthy, happy and safe at Boston College. If you are ever concerned about a resident and would like to speak with any of our staff members about possible resources or referrals, feel free to reach out by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling our office directly at 617-552-9900.
All students can benefit from an Individual Health Plan (iHP) offered through the Office of Health Promotion. The iHP is a one-hour personal health conversation with one of our certified Health Coaches to discuss health goals and set a personal plan. This conversation is a great referral to make to any of your residents seeking additional support towards reaching health goals and balance here at BC.
