The Okanagan Charter: An International Charter for Health Promoting Universities and Colleges calls on post-secondary schools to embed health into all aspects of campus culture; and to lead health promotion action and collaboration, locally and globally. Created in June 2015, the Charter provides institutions with a common language, principles, and a vision for wellbeing in person, place and planet. UAB is a proud member of the U.S. Health Promoting Campuses Network as well at the International Health Promoting Universities and Colleges.
