University of Bridgeport is excited to be an Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIM-OC) university!

EIM-OC, a health initiative under the American College of Sports Medicine, partners with colleges and universities to promote physical activity as an integral part of overall health and wellness. UB is proud to be able to offer renovated facilities and resources to foster student health.


EIM-OC: Exercise is Medicine® On Campus calls upon universities and colleges to promote 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 with the tools necessary to establish healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime
  • Connecting university healthcare providers with university health fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription.
