Be Well @ Dal
Dalhousie has committed to campus well-being through highlighting wellness and support in our strategic plan, the Third Century Promise (Inclusive Excellence pillar), and through signing on to the Okanagan Charter as a health promoting university.
Building on the work of the Dal self-study devoted to campus health and well-being completed in 2020 and many other consultations and reports, we strive to integrate plans and resources to support a campus-wide approach to well-being for everyone at Dalhousie: students, faculty and staff. A backdrop for this work will be the National Standards for post-secondary student mental health and for healthy workplaces.
The Be Well team has consulted widely to raise awareness of the two National Standards and Dalhousie’s commitment to well-being. We heard about some of the many initiatives already underway across Dalhousie, and we have assembled a working group of passionate colleagues who will contribute to prioritizing projects and developing a plan to strengthen the well-being of our community.
