The First University in New England Committed to Improving the Health of Campus Communities
Plymouth State University took the American College Health Association’s Healthy Campus Pledge and is now considered a Healthy Campus 2020 Partner. This pledge supported by University President, Donald Birx demonstrates a campus’ commitment toward achieving the Healthy Campus 2020 goals and objectives, and Plymouth State has joined a growing group of diverse, motivated institutions and organizations working every day to move campuses across our nation toward better health and well-being.
Most recently, Plymouth State University hosted the 1st Annual Healthy Living Summit, an educational symposium that showcased the impact and vision for supporting the health and wellbeing of the campus and beyond. Nicholas Vailas ’76 provided the closing remarks for the symposium. “As a PSU Alumnus and President’s Council member, it brings me great pride to see Plymouth State as a national leader in promoting healthy living for students, faculty, staff, families, and the community. A model in delivering a message that attaining wellness is not a once in a while endeavor, but an ethos of attaining health through day to day decisions and choices that foster wellness and an environment that supports healthy living choices,” said Vailas.
