Healthier Campus Initiative

The Concord University Healthier Campus Initiative is a three year plan to implement 21 activities to help make the healthy choice the easy choice. We are fortunate to collaborate with the Partnership for a Healthier America through this initiative. Below, you will find a schedule of healthy lifestyle event and activities on campus, a list of the 21 activities being implemented at Concord, healthy lifestyle resources on campus, and information on the Concord University Wellness Committee.

Here are some resources that can make it easier to make healthy choices on campus:

  • Recreation and Wellness: Here is information on the campus fitness facilities and the intramural sports program.
  • Counseling Center: All students have access to the campus counseling center. Visit our Counseling Center webpage to learn more about the services offered and to request a specific appointment time.
