Working to provide effective health promotion efforts presents many challenges for health promotion professionals employed at institutions of higher education. For many professionals, the greatest sources of inspiration to overcome these challenges can be found in the success stories of fellow colleagues in the field. In this section, you will have an opportunity to read stories from institutions that have found success incorporating the Standards.
Stories from the Field include Standards in Action! testimonials provided by professionals in the field of health promotion in higher education, highlighting how they have put the standards of practice into action on their campuses. Additionally, you will find more descriptive real-world examples, as told by leaders themselves, highlighting how they have put the Hiring Guidelines, VIA, or the Standards into action on their campuses.
We invite you to review these stories as they may help to guide your strategic efforts and provide inspiration to support your program assessment, professional development, campus mobilization, and advocacy goals.
