SFU's Health Promotion team is taking a settings-based approach to enhance conditions to support health and well-being. This initiative is founded in Health Promotion theory supported by the World Health Organization (WHO). A Healthy Campus Community takes a collaborative approach towards creating campus conditions that foster well-being and success by engaging staff, faculty, students, administrators, and community partners. 

Everyone (which includes you!) can do their part in making SFU a Healthy Campus Community. We hope you will join us!
