Two campus departments earned the Certified Healthy Department designation from Human Resources for supporting the overall health of staff members.

President Philomena V. Mantella presented certificates to the Department of Public Safety and the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies in April.

Nearly 30 campus departments have earned the CHD designation, which was established in 2014. Departments submit an application and must meet criteria, which includes use of exercise release time, flexible work arrangements, stress management support, access to healthy foods and participation in the Healthy Choices Wellness Program.
