The Healthy Campus Network (HCN) envisions a campus culture that encourages health and wellness activities.

The HCN achieves this by sharing information about new resources, workshops, and opportunities to engage in wellness programming on campus.

Furthermore, members are expected to forward announcements about the HCN programs and to encourage colleagues to participate in campus-wide wellness campaigns.
