HONOLULU – Institutions of higher learning and organizations in 14 states and Canada have taken the pledge to demonstrate their commitment to achieving Healthy Campus 2020 goals and objectives. Kapi'olani Community College is the first in Hawai'i to join with Healthy Campus 2020.

Healthy Campus 2020 is a nationwide initiative based on Healthy People 2020 and led by the American College Health Association (ACHA). The goal is to impact and improve the overall health of all students, faculty and staff on college campuses.

Kapi'olani CC has already pledged to work towards better health in areas such as tobacco and alcohol use, stress, poor diet and the lack of physical exercise. To emphasize, Chancellor Leon Richards said, “We are seriously committed to being a Healthy Campus.” A Healthy Campus Task Force has been appointed to advance this health and wellness drive.
