At UBC we recognize the foundational importance of wellbeing to our success as individuals, as a university, and as a community. We aspire to support our people to achieve their full potential in teaching, learning, working, and research by making wellbeing a priority that guides our daily interactions, decisions, policy planning, and program development.
UBC Wellbeing is a collaborative effort to make the University a better place to live, work and learn through a systems-wide approach to wellbeing across our campuses. The work of UBC Wellbeing is guided by the Okanagan Charter, a shared call to action for partners, leaders, and community members to make UBC a leading wellbeing-promoting university.
On the UBC Okanagan campus, wellbeing is everyone’s responsibility. Wellbeing specialists work within Health & Wellness and Human Resources to carry out the Okanagan Charter’s calls to action. Integral to their work is that of their Campus Health partners, plus many others (staff, faculty, and students) on campus. This is an exciting adventure.
