This course is planned and hosted by the North Central College Health Association.

The annual NCCHA conference draws health and wellbeing professionals from institutions of higher education across the North Central region of the United States (Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin). Attendees represent all areas of college health: medical providers, nurses, health promotion staff, registered dietitians, social workers, counselors, directors, and administrative staff. 

The theme for the Fall 2023 meeting is “Moving from wellness to wellbeing”.  Participants will explore the need for institutions to center the aspirations of the Okanagan Charter to “enhance the success of their institutions; create campus cultures of compassion, well-being, and equity; improve the health of the people who live, learn, work, play and love on our campuses; and strengthen the ecological, social and economic sustainability of our communities and wider society."


At the conclusion of this meeting, learners should be able to:

  1. Identify current frameworks for system level health promotion work on college campuses.
  2. Explain cultural humility and cultural responsiveness skills to provide optimal care for students.
  3. Identify communication skills in working with patients on delivering health information and education.
  4. Discuss quality and safety standards in college health and how those can influence clinical judgement.
  5. Identify best practices in college student wellbeing to influence programs, strategies, and service delivery.
