About the program

Healthy UoN is a University of Newcastle program that boosts the physical, social and psychological health and wellbeing of our community by promoting healthy learning, working and living environments.

This program creates a platform to coordinate and to consolidate our health, safety and wellbeing initiatives and helps identify areas where we can improve.

Healthy UoN initiatives are guided by a steering group and informed by the World Health Organisation Healthy Universities Framework.

Working parties have been established to focus on the priority areas of:

  • organisational health
  • psychological health
  • health promotion
  • research and evaluation
