National Research & Development Project 2008-9 - Healthy Universities
Whole university approach

National Research & Development Project 2008-9

In 2008-09, UCLan led a National Research and Development Project funded by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and the Department of Health.  The project aimed to report on the potential for a national programme on Healthy Universities that could contribute to health, wellbeing and sustainability. The project comprised four strands:

  • Literature review
  • HEI-level research
  • National-level stakeholder research
  • Joint action planning and reporting.

The Final Report concluded that there is a clear demand for national-level stakeholder organisations to demonstrate leadership through championing and resourcing a Healthy Universities Programme that not only adds value within the higher education sector, but also helps build consistency of approach across the entire spectrum of education.
