5: Promote a healthy, safe campus community
Lehigh's Health and Wellness Center prepared for and responded to the H1N1 epidemic
by offering free definitive testing for H1N1, participating in a statewide study on
demographics and living situations, and collaborating with other campus offices to
assist students and keep the campus community informed.
More than 1,600 doses of the H1N1 vaccine were administered to students and others
during campus-wide clinics in November and December, 2009.
The LUPD installed surveillance cameras in strategic locations to enhance personal safety.
The Healthy Living Interest House grew to include 21 students.
The LUPD chief was named regional director for the college and university division of
the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).
A national report was issued by the Harvard Gambling Task Force that outlined
recommendations for science-based policies and programs. Maddy Eadline, director of
special projects, represented Lehigh on this task force.
The student-run Emergency Medical Services team received state re-accreditation for an additional three years.
