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 campuses become health-promoting institutions; as well as UBC’s Wellbeing Strategic Frameworkour commitment and approach to embedding wellbeing across our university culture and leading action and collaboration locally and globally.


Wellbeing Priorities

UBC Wellbeing is currently focused on six priority areas, identified through consultation with our community and informed by research. Across our campuses, departments, units, and faculties, we are collaborating to address challenges and enact meaningful change in each of these areas.

We all have a hand in shaping campus environments that support health, wellbeing, and sustainability. By championing wellbeing, we can build stronger and more inclusive communities at UBC and beyond.
