Eppler-Wolff on-campus services and education focuses on:

  1. Respect for the Union College community by minimizing the impact of alcohol and other drug use upon others.
  2. Care for one’s own health and well-being
  3. Prevention of harm and encouraging students to seek assistance and support for self or others

The Eppler-Wolff Counseling Center’s Health Promotion/Education program are guided by the following principles:

  1. Empowering campus communities to help themselves
  2. Recognizing the unique value and needs of Union’s diverse cultures and sub-populations
  3. Producing and disseminating data to inform and evaluate campus health status, strategies and programs
  4. Partnering and collaborating with a variety of community stakeholders to achieve coordinated response to campus health issues
  5. Working with students, faculty, and staff to develop and sustain prevention programming, provide early intervention services, and build relationships to address community health issues.
