As part of the Okanagan Charter commitments that University of Waterloo adopted in October 2018, Campus Wellness is launching a Wellness Collaborative. The collaborative is tasked with:

  • Being a University-wide collaboration led by Campus Wellness with representatives that include students, faculty and staff;
  • Using a holistic approach to health and wellness that is inclusive of everyone who lives, works, and learns at the University with an emphasis on mental health;
  • Leveraging existing wellness programs and initiatives; identifying gaps in services and supports; setting priorities for new health and wellness initiatives; and working with campus partners to implement those initiatives;
  • Responding to the unique needs and strengths of each Faculty, department and student group who will correspondingly share their insights and learnings with the collaborative; and
  • Sharing the University’s experiences and best practices with other campuses and broader society through dialogue with external stakeholders regarding health and well-being in universities.

If you are interested in learning more about the Wellness Collaborative or becoming involved, visit the Collaborative website to sign up for more information as the Collaborative gets moving.
