Healthy Relationships Initiatives

Catholic University recognizes the need to provide students with the opportunity to learn more about themselves and how they see themselves living in authentic friendships and romantic relationships.

The Office of the Dean of Students, Residence Life, Campus Ministry and Student Health Services offer students a variety of programs and events designed to encourage reflection and dialogue on these critical issues and provide students skills and tools to effectively enjoy healthy relationships during their time at Catholic University and beyond.
