Special Populations


Our mission is to promote balanced, healthy lifestyles among the diverse UIUC community and to provide health and wellness information for typically underserved populations.

Goals and Objectives

  • Promote dialogue on cross-cultural health issues.
  • Design and implement interactive programs that facilitate health awareness to the UIUC student community.
  • Provide translated health education materials in several languages to our target populations (14 health topics currently available in 8 different languages).
  • Provide illness prevention/health promotion programs through the offices of Student Affairs, ethnic group clubs and organizations, and some selected academic units.
  • Provide valuable health information and related literatures by providing links to national, regional, local and Big 10 health centers.
  • Maintain the Multicultural Health Clearinghouse web site detailing health information for special populations.
  • Engage in activities that will encourage student involvement in health/outreach programs.
  • Work with local health/social agencies and also provide desired services to the underserved, underinsured and underrepresented community members.
