Healthy UC Davis Offers Comprehensive Wellbeing to Its Campus Community

Across North America, recreation departments are serving as a driving force on campuses for integrated approaches to health and wellbeing. When UCLA received an endowment to start a healthy campus initiative in 2012, it opened the doors for the Healthy Campus Network (HCN) to eventually be implemented throughout the entire University of California system. The HCN initiative is aimed at making UC the healthiest place to work, learn, and live. On the University of California Davis campus, this effort is called Healthy UC Davis.

Healthy UC Davis got its start after University of California system President Janet Napolitano sent a charge letter to each UC chancellor telling them to put together a Healthy Campus Network steering committee and to set up some kind of infrastructure. At UC Davis, they received this charge in January 2017 from interim Chancellor Ralph Hexter and Vice Chancellor Kelly Ratliff. They then started pulling together partners and stakeholders for bi-weekly meetings in early Spring 2017.
