Objective 6

Objective 6 seeks to align student and staff wellbeing policies and initiatives to foster an inclusive and supportive community.

An aligned strategic approach to the health and wellbeing of both staff and student groups is required to bring about cultural change and lasting improvements since there are numerous dependencies between the two groups.

This strategy is aligned with the UCL Wellbeing Strategy (2017-2022), which primarily addresses staff wellbeing.

Objective leads: Lina Kamenova (SSW) and Danielle Swanson (Students' Union UCL).
