2016 Champions for a Healthy Campus Community


For the fifth year, SFU recognized “champions” for their outstanding contributions to the health and well-being of the University as part of SFU’s Healthy Campus Community initiative. On February 1, 2017 President Andrew Petter joined the Health Promotion team, a unit within Health and Counselling Services, and the University community to honour the 2016 Champion for a Healthy Campus Community.

This year, the award honours the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences’ (FASS) Connections Mentorship Program for helping to create a campus that positively influences students’ health and well-being.

The program pairs upper-year FASS student volunteers with first-year students. The senior students act as mentors and advise incoming students about University resources and opportunities.


The 2016 Healthy Campus Community Champions were recognized at a reception on February 1st, 2017 at the Diamond Alumni Centre, SFU Burnaby Campus
