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.
The Wellness Guide is an online resource for students with everything you need to know about academic success, and emotional, spiritual, physical and social stuff. Visit http://www.ucalgary.ca/wellnessguide.
2008 saw the formal launch of a new Wellness Centre and the integration of Health Services (family physicians, chiropractors, massage therapists, nutritionist, psychiatrists), Counselling and the Chaplaincy. Integration will create a culture of wellness on campus - a place where students can truly experience a commitment to improving health and wellbeing.
