Living and Learning - Health and Wellness on Campus
June 6, 2018 | Xavier University | Cincinnati, OH
Colleges and universities have long offered programs in the health sciences to prepare health care professionals to serve their communities following graduation. More recently, schools have looked inward as well, actively addressing the health and wellness of the student body on campus – and helping to promote its lifelong importance. This symposium will provide detailed examples of both endeavors and the best practices that guide them:
Northern Kentucky University will soon open its new Health Innovation Center, a state-of-the-art facility that will “disrupt traditional lecture style classes” to better serve today’s students and accommodate a variety of learning modalities.
Through a comprehensive master plan, Kent State University is envisioning ways to promote student, faculty and staff health and wellness, from its food service program to its recreational opportunities and connections to the community.
Xavier University has teamed up with Cincinnati-based TriHealth to become national leaders in collegiate health and sports medicine, with a “bold vision for how health and wellness will be integrated into the fabric of campus life for students and employees alike.”
Join us for a stimulating day of engagement and networking with trendsetters in campus health and wellness.
Describe the underlying drivers of higher education’s student health and wellness initiatives and how that influences physical campus planning.
Outline a planning process designed for partnerships and affiliations with external health organizations to create a student recreation and health building that improves student health and wellbeing.
Explore interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary design strategies for connecting health sciences education with social science, informational science, and the physical and life sciences.
Describe how a master plan can focus on improving comprehensive, campus-wide health and wellness.
