After many years of health promoting activities and effort at UCD, the Healthy UCD Strategy was endorsed by UMT in 2016. The Healthy UCD Steering Committee is now charged with the responsibility to deliver on the strategy objectives with the purpose of supporting the UCD ambition to be recognised as Ireland's Global University.

Healthy UCD endeavours to create a culture supportive of healthy choices for students and staff at UCD and to raise awareness of individuals' capacity to improve their own health status. Our university is concerned with the development of the whole person and providing opportunities to establish lifelong habits and attitudes for learning, welfare, community awareness, health and wellbeing.
