Policy Statement on Student Health and Wellness

In support of the University's Policy Statement on Health and Safety, Queen's University is committed to a living and learning environment that promotes student health and wellness. The Senate, Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, and students collectively share responsibility for fostering an inclusive, respectful, equitable, supportive, and accessible Queen's community that shapes a campus in which health and wellness is viewed holistically.

The University recognizes the importance of cultivating a campus culture that views health and well-being as determinants of learning, that supports peoples’ flourishing and endeavors to institute related programs, services, policies and practices that respect the diverse health and wellness needs of the student population. 

Queen’s University acknowledges the interconnection between a healthy campus environment and a transformative learning experience, and educational excellence.
