Team Kent State places first in the national On the Move challenge

Staff report

Nearly 800 employees from across Kent State University’s eight campuses came together as one team, Team Kent State, and captured first place in the national “On the Move University Challenge” for the most active university in the country during a 12-week challenge.

The challenge grew out of a collaborative partnership between Kent State, Plymouth State and the Wellness Council of America to pilot a university-focused challenge designed to engage other colleges and universities across the nation to take a stand for more movement and improved cultures of well-being for employees.

KSU aspires to be one of the healthiest university communities. This university effort, Kent State Wellness, promotes a culture of health and wellness for students and employees. It also includes the vision and goals outlined in “A Strategic Roadmap to a Distinctive Kent State” with a robust employee wellness program that provides services and resources to support employees physically, mentally and emotionally.
