The Healthy Beverage Initiative (HBI)

which aims to improve access to tap water as a healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages and provides the opportunity to reduce sugar sweetened beverages on campus.

Partnership with the Radical Resilience Initiative

a campus-wide effort to promote mental health and well-being through a social justice lens. This initiative is a collaborative effort overseen by a working group of staff, faculty, and students, working in partnership with UCSC Healthy Campus and the Student Health Center.
