Health + Well-being Education

At the University of Alberta we are committed to supporting our people first because we know our success depends on it. We are committed to A Culture of Care where psychological, cultural and physical safety are at the heart of health and well-being.

We approach learning about health and well-being as an opportunity for you to map your own path toward health, happiness and a state of well-being. While these paths may be different for each of us there are also common experiences in the workplace that require specific attention: the toll that workload and work-related stress take on our sense of well-being and the need to build connections that rely on a culture of trust and respect.

We deeply value your interest in and participation in our learning opportunities toward health and well-being. The recent People Strategy results reinforce our learning curriculum framework and provide general themes to focus our attention in the coming years.

COURSES 2024/2025

We know that investing in the mental health and well-being of our employees is a critical part of creating a Culture of Care: specifically, learning how to support ourselves to manage the effects of work-related stress. Our course schedule evolves throughout the year as employee needs are expressed and integrated into new offerings.


Central to our learning framework are core human needs, personal values + purpose, interconnectedness within a caring workplace. The four pillars in this learning framework are employee centered, holistic and proactive. Alignment of these pillars lead to life-work harmony and enables our employees to thrive in their work roles.
