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.
University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) was recognized for its cohesive, innovative public health approach to student health and wellness. Active Minds and a national panel of expert reviewers conducted a comprehensive, multi-stage application process for evaluation.
“UNCG’s campus climate and wide range of programs provide diverse, easy-to-access options for maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” said, UNCG Student Government Association President, Brittany Hudson. “We receive encouragement from our peers, faculty, and staff to attend to our mental and physical health, and to develop healthy habits that will serve us well in our life after college.”
