Healthy U

Royal Roads has developed a health and wellness plan, branded Healthy U with a vision to support our employees in all aspects of health, summarized as ‘Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, and Healthy Life’. Healthy U aims to build and grow a healthy work environment for all current and future employees.  A well designed wellness program provides the most important ingredient in changing health behaviours: motivation.   There is no more powerful ingredient in changing behaviour than social support and access to programs and facilities. Most of all, it is synonymous with the fundamental mission of Royal Roads University: discovery and the maximization of human potential – LIFE.CHANGING!

We will be using this page to communicate some of the things we have been doing so, keep checking back to learn more!
