About the Healthy Campus Community Initiative

A Healthy Campus Community is one where the people, processes, and spaces contribute to well-being and success for all. It's in the words spoken, decisions made, actions taken, and culture and systems created.

Our Initiative

The Healthy Campus Community initiative involves creating a campus that positively influences the health and well-being of students, staff, and faculty.  This is achieved by embedding a focus on well-being within the following areas for action:

  • Learning & Working Environments
  • Policies & Processes
  • Personal Growth & Development
  • Social Connection & Community Engagement
  • Physical Spaces
  • Services & Supports

SFU's Vision for a Healthy Campus Community (PDF) has been co-created through campus-wide consultation. It is informed by literature and aligns with The Okanagan Charter: An International Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges.
