 Health for all

Health promoting universities and colleges bring health into everyday life, business practices, and the academic mission. In doing so, health-promoting universities and colleges contribute to the success of our institutions; create cultures of compassion, well-being, equity, fairness, and social justice; improve the health of the people who live, learn, work, play, and love at our institutions; and strengthen the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of our communities and broader society.” [1]

The mission and goal of the Network of Health Promoting Universities Austria is to develop Austria’s universities into a health promoting living, learning and working environment for staff and students. Strategies, concepts and measures are developed to improve individual psychosocial health and to create healthy framework conditions.
