Healthy Carolina

We support and encourage healthy choices in the Carolina Community as a way of life, encompassing all dimensions of wellness.

Vision

A healthy campus environment in which to live, learn, work and play.

What Is Healthy Carolina?

Healthy Carolina is a way of life. It is the pursuit of health and wellness in mind, body and spirit. It is the individual person, the environment and the community creating a culture and atmosphere that encourages healthy choices, healthy behaviors and a healthy place to live. It is a mission and vision born out of the desire to see USC as a healthy community to help our faculty, staff and students learn to thrive in life.

Healthy Carolina Coalitions

Healthy Carolina Coalitions consist of faculty, staff, students and community members who are part of the Columbia campus community.

The coalitions provide campus leadership in the study, promotion and implementation of Healthy Campus 2020 goals and objectives at the University of South Carolina. Healthy Carolina’s core functions are supported by Student Health Services staff and these coalitions. These functions include:

  1. Leadership and Support
  2. Funding
  3. Health Communications
  4. Collaboration and Advocacy
  5. Research and Assessment

Healthy Carolina Coalitions are guided by a steering committee and strategic plans are utilized to address health behaviors outlined in the National Prevention Strategy.
