A Celebration in the Making

Join us in celebrating ACHA’s 100th Anniversary in 2020!

Chicago, IL


In 1920, representatives from 53 institutions of higher education met in Chicago and established the American Student Health Association, which later became the American College Health Association.

These visionaries formed the foundation for what ACHA is today—the voice for student health, mental health, and wellness, standing at the forefront of issues that impact our college students. Almost 100 years after its founding, ACHA represents over 1,100 institutions of higher education and the collective health, mental health, and wellness needs of 10 million college students.

Now, we look forward to the year 2020 in which we will honor our legacy while planning for the future and all the opportunities that exist for ACHA and its members to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the nations’ college students. In the months leading up to the 2020 Annual Meeting in Chicago, we will be sharing with you moments from ACHA’s history as well as ways you can celebrate with us.
