What is a Healthy Osprey?
In April 2008, Healthy Osprey was
established as a University-wide initiative with the purpose of transforming
the health and well-being of the University community. It is a collaboration of
students, faculty and staff working together to foster an environment that
embraces the development of a healthy Body,
Mind and Spirit. The initiative
was created to assess and respond to the health and wellness needs of the
community, to create and maintain a healthy environment which will enhance the
holistic student experience. The mission statement was intentionally crafted to
embrace a holistic, integrated philosophy that closely aligns with goals and
philosophies of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs and the University at large.
Healthy Osprey is a collaboration
of students, faculty and staff working together to foster a university
community that embraces the development of a healthy Body, Mind and Spirit. The
purpose of the Healthy Osprey initiative is to assess and respond to the needs
of the UNF community to create and maintain a healthy environment which will
enhance the holistic UNF experience.
The following focus areas have
been identified as being essential to achieving and maintain holistic health:
- Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs
- Environmental Health
- Mental Health
- Physical Health
- Sexual Health
- Violence Prevention
To create an on-campus
environment conducive for healthy living.
Building a healthy community that supports healthy lifestyles
begins with small changes at the individual, interpersonal and institutional
level. Once the seed is planted and the environment is right, those small
changes drive the growth of the UNF community in every dimension of wellness.
This will allow Faculty, Staff and Student lifestyles to truly blossom in
