Healthy Campus

Welcome to Healthy Campus


The Healthy Campus Team in Wellness Services is dedicated to health promotion, which is understood as "the process of enabling people to increase control over their health and its determinants and thereby improve their health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behaviour towards a wide range of social and environmental interventions." (WHO, 2005).

We work with campus community members to help promote well-being from the individual to the environmental level. We do this collaboratively through an evidence-based population health promotion approach that includes identifying health issues and strategically engaging in programming, education, advocacy, capacity building, and policy initiatives.

To learn more about health promotion at universities and colleges, please see the Okanagan International Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges (2015), of which Mount Royal is a proud signatory.
