UCI is among first U.S. campuses to adopt the Okanagan Charter

The University of California, Irvine was among the first eight U.S. campuses to adopt the Okanagan Charter on September 1, 2021.  By doing so, the campus has committed to making wellbeing an institutional value, as it becomes globally recognized as a Health Promoting University. The Charter provides common language, a clear set of principles, and an aspirational framework to put wellbeing at the center of everything we do as an institution.  There are currently almost 200 campuses who are part of the U.S. Health Promoting Campuses Network, and almost 20 campuses have officially adopted the Charter. Read more…
