UoN Healthy University Strategy
The health and wellbeing of students and staff in their study, work environment and beyond, is a priority for the University of Newcastle.
Healthy UoN aims to enhance the physical, social and psychological health and wellbeing of the University community by promoting healthy learning, working and living environments.
Healthy UoN creates a platform to co-ordinate and to consolidate our health, safety and well-being initiatives and helps identify areas where we can improve.
Healthy UoN initiatives are guided by a steering group chaired by the Deputy Academic Registrar for Health and Wellbeing, Dr Stephanie Brookman, which brings together key stakeholders including student, professional and academic staff representatives.
Healthy UoN is informed by the World Health Organisation Healthy Universities Framework. For more information go to this link.
Working parties have been established to focus on the priority areas of :
- Organisational Health
- Psychological health
- Environment and sustainability
- Health Promotion
- Research and Evaluation.
