Healthy Campus 2020

Healthy Campus 2020 provides a framework for improving the overall health status on campuses nationwide. Strategies suggested in Healthy Campus 2020 extend beyond traditional interventions of education, diagnosis, treatment, and health care at clinical levels. Through the collaborative efforts of health, academic, student affairs, and administrative colleagues, institutions of higher education can foster healthy environments and behaviors.

Healthy Campus 2020 has evolved to: include national health objectives for students and faculty/staff; promote an action model using an ecological approach; and provide a toolkit for implementation based on the MAP-IT (Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement and Track) framework. These tools and resources will help institutions of higher education determine which objectives are relevant, achievable, and a priority on your campus.

Campus communities in which all members live long, healthy lives.
