The Healthy University (HU) is a collaborative campus-wide effort towards making UCLan a better place to live, work and learn through a ‘whole system’ approach to wellbeing. This includes student engagement, representation and participation; working across faculties, schools and services; linking UCLan and Students’ Union strategies and plans; developing curriculum links; conducting research; and being responsive to current and emerging agendas.
The HU was established in 1995 and has become a national and international leader in this field – establishing and co-ordinating the UK Healthy Universities Network, and hosting its website and guidance packages.
The HU Plan for 2018-20 focuses on a range of issues relevant to students and staff. This involves staff and students from across the University and brings benefits to the whole campus and its close neighbours.
