Scent-Free Initiatives

The Scent Free Awareness Campaign "We Share the Air" asks for your support in limiting or eliminating the use of scented personal care products whenever possible. Please see the website http://www.ucalgary.ca/scentfree for information about the health effects related to scented personal care products and alternatives that you can choose.

Thank you for helping make the University of Calgary campus a healthy environment for everyone.

The University of Calgary was honored to receive the Calgary Chamber of Commerce Gold level H.E.A.L.T.H. (Helping Employees Achieve LifeTime Health) award in 2005 for our workplace health initiatives. We believe that the quality of our workplace influences the quality of student experience.

The University of Calgary is the proud recipient of the Premier's Award for Healthy Workplaces (2006), and received the highest accolade as the recipient of the Award of Distinction for employers with greater than 1000 employees. This award recognizes Alberta employers who demonstrate commitment to improving the health of employees and provide healthy workplace programs that encourage employees to make healthy eating choices and live an active lifestyle to remain healthy at work and beyond.

Healthy U of C recognizes that health and wellness is a shared responsibility between the organization and its people. Health, Safety and Wellness is one of the thirteen portfolios in the Campus Sustainability Plan, and the Sustainability Stewardship Working Group is an interdisciplinary team coordinating initiatives designed to actively engage the campus community in promoting a healthy campus culture. The portfolio's mission is to further understand the interrelationships between quality of life and sustainability, and seek local and global solutions; to enhance awareness of the interrelationships between the built environment, health, and wellness; and to enhance the quality of life on campus and in the community at large. As a post-secondary institution, we have a special responsibility to create a healthy community that enhances the student experience and models healthy choices.
