Healthy Campus 2020

Student Objectives

Faculty/Staff Objectives

GVSU has taken the Healthy Campus 2020 pledge. Healthy Campus 2020 is a framework to support campuses in improving the health of their students, staff, and faculty. No two Healthy Campus initiatives are exactly alike, but a successful Healthy Campus initiative includes:

  1. A network of people working toward a common vision
  2. Priority health needs of your community
  3. A plan with strategies and action steps
  4. Community- and individual-focused interventions
  5. Tracking progress
