Simon Fraser University’s Healthy Campus Community InitiativeSep 02, 2011 | Simon Fraser University
Simon Fraser University’s Healthy Campus Community Initiative has been internationally recognized for its leadership in advancing systemic health promotion within a university context. Planning for the initiative began in 2010, and the first iteration of the initiative was launched in 2011 with the intention of taking a systemic, campus-wide approach to creating conditions that enhance health and well-being.
Simon Fraser University’s Vision for a Healthy Campus Community was co-created in Fall 2014, through campus-wide consultation, in which over 300 campus members from all 8 faculties and all 3 campuses shared their input and ideas. The vision links well-being to the success of individuals and the institution. It calls upon each member of the campus community to consider how they can be a part of creating a healthy campus community.
