About Us

Community Health is committed to using effective, research-based strategies to promote health at CU.  This requires continual planning, implementation, evaluation and revision of the department’s programs.

Our work is guided by the standards set forth by:

  • The Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS)
  • Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)
  • American College Health Association (ACHA)

In addition, the educational programs and materials that we create are grounded in the following evidence-based health promoting approaches:

  • Positive Deviance
  • Health Disparities
  • Trans Theoretical Change Model
  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
  • Health Communications (social marketing, social norms)
