Healthy Campus Framework: Culture

A Healthy Campus Culture adheres to and builds structures, systems and policies along a socio-ecological model that focus on improving the well-being of students, staff, faculty and the larger campus community.

Healthy Campus Cultures have a history of building systems, programs and policies through needs assessment, a recognized Central Organization to facilitate collaborative work across sectors, and continually evaluating and improving processes.

Well-being is a priority in the institution’s mission, vision, and values, as well as onboarding and succession planning processes. At this level, institutions are recognized nationally for supporting their students’ health and well-being and have data that demonstrates such.

Though staff may change, in a Healthy Campus Culture the institution continues operating with a systemic orientation to health and wellness.
