The HOPE Team is a multidisciplinary team approach for students with disordered eating and exercise behaviors.  The goals of the HOPE Team are to provide students who are suffering from eating and exercise disorders with an on-campus resource to give them what they need in terms of education, evaluation, and eventual recovery. To meet with a member of the HOPE Team, contact them directly to set up an appointment.
