About Us

In Spring of 2009, campus colleagues from different departments on campus, joined together to create a Healthy Campus Initiative for Portland State University focused on three areas:

  • Creating a cleaner, more beautiful campus with space for community, reflection, recreation, and relaxation.
  • Creating a safer and healthier campus where safer, healthier choices are easy to make.
  • Creating a campus where help for changing individual behavior is readily available and encouraged out of a sense of mutual respect and caring.

The Healthy Campus Initiative welcomes partners who have projects that fit the mission of our effort. Please contact us via the contact form on this website.
