Partnership for a Healthier America Initiative to Promote Campus Wellness


Interim President Hubert Grimes signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Partnership For A Healthier America to join the organization’s Healthier Campus Initiative at its May 2018 Innovating a Healthier Future Summit. Bethune-Cookman University will fulfill commitments of improving the health of its students through 23 guidelines over three years, all with an eye toward shaping good habits for our future leaders. Over three years, the University will make changes such as providing healthier food and beverage options in dining venues, creating opportunities for physical activity and offering wellness programming on campus. Through these changes, B-CU will have a major impact on healthier living now and for generations to come.
