Building Healthy Academic Communities

The Consortium connects health and wellness professionals from academic institutions in pursuit of healthier campuses.

As a national organization, we have tools to guide our members toward better planning, leadership and constituent engagement. As a consortium, our members are able to share best practices and help set national standards for academic wellness together.

Through thoughtful, evidence-based programming, we have the opportunity to affect the lives of campus communities far and wide. When we share our successes and collaborate, our capacity for change grows even further.
