The UCSC Faculty & Staff Wellness Program in the Office of Risk Services supports the health and well-being of the campus community by managing UCSC Healthy Campus. UCSC Healthy Campus, part of the systemwide Healthy Campus Network (HCN), is taking an integrated and comprehensive approach to enhance the health and well-being of the campus community by forming partnerships with faculty, staff, students, and the surrounding community to develop, implement, and foster a culture of wellness.

The Healthy Campus Network (HCN) is a University of California systemwide initiative that promotes innovative reforms in all dimensions of health and well-being “to make UC the healthiest place to work, learn and live."  It is founded on a vision that, to fundamentally change our health environment, campus communities must invest in a host of small changes that add up to meaningful shifts, thus producing a lasting culture of health.

The HCN is a robust network of diverse coalitions across all 10 UC campuses working together to promote individual campus and systemwide changes to advance a culture of health and well-being.  It is unique in its inclusive approach toward the whole campus community — students, staff and faculty — who together conceive of, launch, and study innovations that are occurring across UC to infuse health into everyday operations, business practices, and academic and work life, creating a health-promoting university.
