The Shaw Wellness Institute is the university's health promotion office. It also houses the Alcohol and Other Drug Services program and the dietitian.
The institute addresses eight different components of wellness: emotional, environmental, intellectual, multicultural, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual. Please view our brochure
to find out more information.
Following an eight dimension model, the Wellness Institute features a schedule of events and programs
that help Colgate students and staff develop skills to lead healthy, balanced and purposeful lives. By providing information through interesting and creative means, we help develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that become the foundation for a lifetime of healthy behaviors. LEARN MORE

DAPA (Drug and Alcohol Peer Advisors) Grants are intended to support a fun and safe social environment at Colgate. Our committee funds registered events containing alcohol and alcohol-free events. To that end, the grants fund: (1) Substantial food items at registered parties with alcohol during high-risk nights (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights), and (2) food for alcohol-free events during Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The grants do NOT fund alcohol, drinks, decorations, very small gatherings, or off-campus events. The grants are reviewed by fellow students.
