UCC Health Matters Initiative

UCC Health Matters is constantly working to improve the health and wellbeing of staff, students, and visitors to our university community. 

We utilise the World Health Organisation's "Health Promoting University" framework which takes into account three things:

  • The protection of health and the promotion of wellbeing for staff, students, and the wider community through policies and practices
  • Relating health promotion to research and teaching
  • Developing health promotion alliances and outreach links in the community.

UCC achieved its goal in becoming a recognised Health Promoting University in February 2015. Through UCC Health Matters, HSE South presented UCC with a flag which represents the university's continued commitment to Health Promotion for all staff and students.
