ECU earns Certified Healthy Campus status

Ada —  

East Central University has been selected as a Certified Healthy Campus by the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

There are three levels of certification: basic, merit and excellence. ECU received merit certification with the help of its new tobacco-free campus policy.

“I’m very proud to be part of a campus which promotes health and wellness,” said Holli Witherington, executive director of East Central University’s Brandon Whitten Institute.

ECU Vice President for Student Development Dr. Jerry Forbes also serves as the campus’ Tobacco Free Task Force director.

Six standards make the certification possible, including integration with the learning mission of higher education, collaborative practice, cultural competence, theory based practice, evidence based practice and professional development and service.
