VOICE campus-wide forum organized for Nov. 22

Tags: ,

VOICE logoWhat makes a healthy university community? A major campus-wide research project recently asked the campus community that question and on November 22, the results will be shared.

The VOICE 2012 project involved more than 100 students as co-researchers, working with faculty and staff to explore ways to create, renew and sustain health-promoting change on campus.

The November 22 forum will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Fipke Centre foyer and feature:

  • A student-led photo exhibit highlighting student experiences on campus.
  • Results from the community dialogue survey.
  • A summary of health-related policies at UBC's Okanagan campus and other North American universities.
  • Mapping of the campus community.

The forum will also set the stage for the next action-oriented phase of the VOICE project. Students and non-students will partner to create change on the health interests identified by the study.
