Healthy Campus 2020

Healthy Campus 2020 is a national initiative out of a coalition from the American College Health Association that is used by Health Promotion and Wellness to guide prevention work at Illinois State University.

Healthy Campus 2020 provides a framework for improving the overall health status on campuses nationwide. Strategies suggested in Healthy Campus 2020 extend beyond traditional interventions of education, diagnosis, treatment, and health care at clinical levels. Through the collaborative efforts of health, academic, student affairs, and administrative colleagues, institutions of higher education can foster healthy environments and behaviors. In addition, Healthy Campus 2020 connects Illinois State University to professionals around the country who are working toward better health at other institutions of higher education.
