Healthy Campus Coalition is a group of students and professionals who stand to cultivate well-being as a core value of our community. We collaborate to:
- Enhance the culture of wellbeing in our community
- Create a network of people working toward a common vision of wellness
- Develop solutions for the health needs of our community
- Share wellness-related initiatives, trends, and events on campus
Our framework was developed by the American College Health Association (ACHA) to support campuses in improving the health of their community.
The coalition acknowledges that there are many efforts around campus to promote health. Mini-grants are available to groups that have programs, projects, and initiatives that expand the coalition’s reach and support the great work that is being done across campus. We intend to sponsor projects on campus that help advance the goals of the coalition.
On October 6, 2016, William & Mary's Division of Student Affairs was awarded the Williamsburg Health Foundation's Annual Award, given for our "work to create an integrated, comprehensive system of wellness programs for students and all campus community members". Learn More in our video and press release.
In the Healthy Campus 2020 initiative, the coalition worked towards goals (pdf) adapted from a national effort to promote health across all college campuses.
The group came together to share information about health-promoting events on campus, thoughts on data and campus trends, and plan projects (events, programs, media campaigns, websites, and activities) that advanced the goals outlined by the coalition.
