Health and Wellness is a key focus of the University of Calgary Human Resources’ People Strategy; it contributes to the University’s goal of being an employer that successfully attracts and retains valued staff. A commitment to organizational and individual health and wellness will lend to a supportive environment where faculty and staff feel valued and are proud of their achievements and their contributions to the University’s organizational goals. The University of Calgary promotes a healthy learning and work environment for students and University staff members. We offer services and facilities that will help you with your physical, social and mental well-being. When you feel well, you are more resilient and better able to do your best in your studies, work and life.
