We often talk about what colleges are doing wrong and where they’re falling short in supporting student health and wellness. But at Active Minds, we want to celebrate the schools that are supporting student health in creative and innovative ways.
This past September, we named the inaugural winners of the award. Today, we are delighted to open applications for the 2016 Active Minds Healthy Campus Award.
The Active Minds Healthy Campus Award recognizes and celebrates U.S. colleges and universities that are prioritizing health and demonstrating innovation and excellence in promoting the well-being of their students. Up to five winning institutions will have their efforts showcased as part of a national media tour in August 2016.
Active Minds is thrilled today to announce the winners of the 2015 Healthy Campus Award:
- Cornell University (Ithaca, NY)
- University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN)
- University of North Carolina at Greensboro (Greensboro, NC)
- University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX)
- Western Washington University (Bellingham, WA)
- Connecticut College and Jefferson College received honorable mentions
As you may remember from earlier posts, the Active Minds Healthy Campus Award recognizes and celebrates U.S. colleges and universities that are prioritizing health and demonstrating innovation and excellence in promoting student well-being. These schools provide inspiring examples of what is possible when students, staff, faculty and administrators from across an entire university work together so that every student has the opportunity to thrive.
