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.

Our Mission

Strategic Model  

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 health!
