The Wellness Center provides health education resources and programs for AU students! Our mission is to provide students with wellness resources, to promote healthy lifestyles, reduce risk behaviors and offer a safe, non-discriminatory environment.
Our health education is based on the philosophy that wellness encompasses many dimensions, including physical, emotional, spiritual and social wellness. Our primary goal is to help students develop positive, healthy lifestyles which will endure throughout a lifetime.
OASIS: Advocacy Services
Housed within the Wellness Center, the Office of Advocacy Services for Interpersonal and Sexual Violence (OASIS) provides free and confidential services to anyone in the campus community who is affected by sexual violence, interpersonal violence (dating or domestic violence), and stalking.
Advocacy is a supportive service intended to help survivors navigate their options and make informed decisions about their security, health, academic well-being, and the adjudication process.
Confiding in an advocate does not mean you must report an incident to the school or the police. If you have any questions or concerns about confidentiality, an advocate can provide clarifying examples. Email us at OASIS@american.edu or call 202-885-7070.
