Exercise is Medicine On Campus


Exercise is Medicine® on Campus (EIM-OC) is a collaborative effort between the kinesiology department and the Kinesiology Student Association that encourages faculty, staff, and students to work together toward improving the health and well-being of the campus community by:

  • Making movement a part of the daily campus culture
  • Providing students the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime

silverKinesiology Department Recognized by Exercise is Medicine ® for Efforts to Create Culture of Wellness on Campus

Kansas State University was one of 167 universities and colleges around the world to be honored by Exercise is Medicine ® for its efforts to create a culture of wellness on campus during a virtual ceremony on June 12th.

Exercise is Medicine-On Campus (EIM-OC) launched its recognition program in 2014 to honor campuses for their efforts to create a culture of wellness. Schools earn gold, silver or bronze status based on their activities. Silver-level campuses engage students, faculty and staff in education initiatives and make movement part of the daily campus culture while promoting and generating awareness of the health benefits of physical activity.

Activities hosted throughout EIM-OC month last October earned the Kinesiology department silver level designation for the second straight year.
