B-Healthy

The mission of the Healthy Campus Initiative is to cultivate a culture and environment of health and well-being that is supportive of individuals and groups in pursuit of their optimal potential.

Join the initiative to make
Binghamton a healthier campus.

The goal of Binghamton University's Healthy Campus Initiative (HCI) is to create an environment and identity that encourages and supports healthy living. Improving the health and well-being of our community and its members improves students' capacity to learn, reduces some of the high-impact impediments to academic performance, improves student retention by improving coping strategies and psychological health, and sets the stage for lifelong healthy living. Workplace wellness for faculty and staff can positively impact employee health and job satisfaction, boost engagement and enhance productivity, resulting in greater employee retention and institutional cost savings.
