Culture + Well-being

At the University of Alberta, we align with the following statement from the World Health Organization (WHO), which frames our efforts in supporting the health and well-being of our community:

“The workplace recognizes the whole person and directly influences the physical, mental/emotional, financial and social well-being of workers and in turn the health of their families, communities and society.” – WHO

The health and well-being of faculty and staff directly impacts the education, work and research that takes place across our campuses. By promoting healthy, preventative and restorative individual health practices, the university strives to cultivate work environments that promote creativity and innovation.

The university values each of its members of faculty and staff and encourages a culture of care that is supportive and free of judgement. When people feel appreciated, respected and satisfied in their roles, supported by safe, healthy environments, they will ultimately be more engaged, connected and productive.

Healthy Campuses

Healthy Campuses provides community-wide initiatives to foster healthy working, learning and living environments for faculty, students and staff.
