honoring campuses that champion student health

The Active Minds Healthy Campus Award recognizes and celebrates U.S. colleges and universities that are prioritizing health and making significant progress toward creating a campus that promotes mental health, physical health, and well-being of its students.

Since 2015, the Healthy Campus Award has championed institutions that not only serve student’s physical health but give equal priority and investment to mental health. It recognizes schools that provide access to quality healthcare and take a comprehensive, public health approach to promoting and protecting the health of every student.

This prestigious award is now in its sixth year. To learn more about the innovative practices each of the 2020 winners have implemented across their campus, view the Healthy Campus Key Findings Report, 2020 press release or view our recorded webinar featuring three of the award-winning colleges.

The Active Minds Healthy Campus Award is made possible through the generous support of Peg’s Foundation.
