The Health and Wellness Steering Committee (HWSC) oversees a campus-wide, coordinated and comprehensive effort to support student health and wellness on campus.
The HWSC considers the physical, socio-cultural, intellectual/academic, spiritual and environmental aspects of the student experience and development as it seeks to advance health and wellness across the campus.
The HWSC will be supported in this activity by the input of three separate but complementary working groups on safety, mental health and alcohol, and advances recommendations from these working groups on best practices in policies, procedures and practices to promote and enhance the health and wellness of individual students and the campus community.
Ultimately, the HWSC drives the strategic direction and vision for a campus devoted to enhancing health and wellness, provides high-level guidance for policies and programs developed by its working groups and approves major decisions for campus initiatives promoting a vibrant, collaborative and supportive campus environment.
The Health and Wellness Steering Committee will consider the following guiding principles in its operations and in the development of policies, programs and services for the Queen’s community.
