About the Healthy Campus Network

In response to President Napolitano’s December 13th, 2016 letter announcing the launch of the Healthy Campus Network(HCN) initiative across the UC system, UC Santa Cruz is implementing the president’s recommendations with the goal of making UCSC a healthier place to work, learn, and live.

The Healthy Campus Network initiative uses an integrative approach to health, guided by the core values of fostering a high level of wellness, encouraging personal responsibility, respecting diversity, and working to reduce health inequalities. The HCN supports the enhancement and expansion of current campus health and wellness efforts; encourages the creation of new health-related projects, academic programs, and policies; and provides students, staff, and faculty with a variety of resources to help them improve all aspects of their health.
