Healthy Campus

Healthy campus. Healthy community.

A quality education goes beyond the classroom. Healthy living fosters holistic success and should be accessible to all. Portland State offers a tremendous amount of wellness-driven resources to our community, but there’s still more that needs to be done.

We know that real change requires collaboration and action at every level. From offering more nutritious food options to influencing campus-wide policy, PSU’s Healthy Campus Initiative seeks to inspire and empower everyone to be well.

In 2016, the Healthy Campus Initiative Steering Committee identified three data-driven priorities that are centered around a healthy mind, healthy body and healthy community. Task forces comprised of faculty, staff and students are hard at work to identify the needs of our community and appropriate steps toward change in these three priority areas:

  • Manage Stress
  • Healthy Eating
  • Safe Campus

Portland State’s Healthy Campus Initiative is guided by Healthy Campus 2020, an effort that provides a framework for improving the overall health status on campuses nationwide.
