American College Health Foundation Seeks Applications for Campus Health Initiatives


The American College Health Foundation, the charitable arm of the American College Health Association, is accepting applications for grants in  support of campus initiatives that foster positive Health Campus 2020 outcomes for a campus community.

ACHA’s Healthy Campus 2020 serves as a framework for improving the health of all students, faculty, and staff on campuses nationwide.  Strategies recommended in Healthy Campus 2020 guidelines extend beyond traditional interventions of education, diagnosis, treatment, and health care at the clinical level. Through the collaborative efforts of colleagues in health, academic, student affairs, and administrative departments, institutions of higher education can foster healthy environments and behaviors. Healthy Campus 2020 resources include ten-year national objectives for students and faculty/staff, an action model using the ecological approach, and an implementation toolkit based on the MAP-IT (mobilize, assess, plan, implement, and track) framework. Priority consideration will be given to proposals that result in sustained mobilization and engagement of campus partners to achieve the goals of Healthy Campus 2020.

One or more grants of $2,500 will be announced at the 2014 ACHA Annual Meeting, May 28 – June 1, 2014, in San Antonio, Texas.

Only campus health professionals who are American College Health Association individual members or employed at an ACHA member institution are eligible to apply. If an applicant is not an individual member but is employed at a member institution, the institution’s individual member representative must also sign the application.

See the ACHA Web site for program guidelines and application instructions.
