Exercise is Medicine on Campus

Exercise is Medicine® on Campus (EIM-OC) is a program calling upon universities and colleges to engage in the promotion of physical activity as a vital sign of health. EIM-OC 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.
  • Assessing physical activity at every student health visit.
  • Providing students the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime.
  • Connecting university health care providers with university health fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription.

GRCC is currently the only community college in the state of Michigan that is a registered Exercise is Medicine (EIM) campus partner. In 2015 we were recognized with a Bronze level status. In 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 we were awarded Silver level status from Exercise is Medicine/American College of Sports Medicine.
