Partner Statement

The Cheyney University family continues to successfully navigate healthy campus living and workplace. We have experienced a resurgence in commitment to holistic student success. Our partnerships, for example our new relationship with Columbia Sportswear Inc., are growing and providing wider opportunities for our students. Columbia Sportswear provided us with camping tents, outdoor gear and yoga mats to help expand our students’ outdoor experiences. We continue to collaborate with community partners such as Holcomb Behavioral Health to enhance our mental wellness initiatives. This year for our Healthy Campus Week we provided different experiences that touched on all the domains of wellness, including Hula Hoop Exercise, Krazy Kale Salad Making, Make Your Own Natural Body Scrub, and Yoga to Heal Trauma to name a few. One student won the Healthy Campus social media sweepstakes prize. The Life Coaches and the collaboration between Thomas Jefferson Hospital, Thompson Hospitality and Cheyney University Division of Student Affairs and Athletics/Recreation allow us to continue providing the best programming for student well-being and employee wellness.
