Theresa Fuller, Fitness & Wellness Coordinator at Troy University.
Princeton University - Our VP for Campus Life has made Prioritizing Health and Wellbeing an institutional priority. Here is the link to her Strategic Plan for 2020-2025: https://campuslife.princeton.edu/about/campus-life-strategic-plan-2020-2025
James Madison University has recently added Student Health and Wellbeing as what we call a Core Quality for the institutional strategic plan. This happened as the result of an effort to expand responsibility for this to all divisions of the campus.
The University of Utah has it in our strategic plan, but it is still in the early stages of implementation. This includes creating a AVP position to oversee Health and Wellbeing and re-aligning units within the Division.

Our training was outsourced to the County Health Department because they had trainers and then the National Council for Behavioral Health
After our fall challenges, We certified over 400 staff and students on QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) - Suicide prevention training. https://qprinstitute.com/
Our Division of Student Affairs also offered QPR certifications during our annual division retreat to @Kevin George’s point

Our dean of students office offers QPR trainings for students and staff throughout the year. Last semester we also had 16 professionals go through the train the trainer Mental Health First Aid program
At the University of Cincinnati we created a collaborative and have been working with an organization that the university is a part of called the Live Well Collaborative located in our innovation hub. They use a design approach to solve problems and have connected us with Master of Design students to do qualitiative research on campus with students, faculty, and staff. This has helped us gain even more support from higher level administrators at the university. We are still in early stages of our partnership. https://www.uc.edu/health/healthyuc/events.html https://livewellcollaborative.org/
We have something similar for virtual connection as well. There is a weekly newsletter and a landing page: https://www.viterbo.edu/student-life/virtual-v-hawks-connect-main-hub

Adelphi - one primary goal in our univ mission statement is to "Support student success". Everything ties back to that. Eric is correct, speak the language of the administration is key. We report under Athletics but work closely with Student Affairs. Campus Rec has been working with Counseling center for a few years as we both identified the issue of student resilience in a meeting one day. It happened more organically, from our mutual need/recognition. They have piloted workshops with us, we have asked them to do presentations, we have participated in job searches, and most recently, they have put together a task force of the counseling center which we are now part of. I see more of these relationships being built, ie: with Student conduct, Health Services, Campus safety officer,, Student Involvement going forward.
