About Us

Community of Practice

Healthy Campus Saskatchewan (HCSK) is a Community of Practice that includes 19 post-secondary institutions and community organizations across the province. This group was born out of a desire to collaborate to support the health and wellbeing of students enrolled in post-secondary education programs.

Our vision is to create healthy, resilient campus communities where students feel safe, supported, and have the knowledge, tools, and resources they need to achieve their personal, academic, and future career goals.

HCSK is passionate about student health and wellbeing and is using this provincial platform to:

  • Share information and resources
  • Build relationships and innovative partnerships to align strategies
  • Improve collaboration and problem-solving between campuses
  • Celebrate successes and overcome challenges
  • Use resources efficiently and effectively to achieve maximum impact on measurable goals

Our Work

Strategic Priorities

Data-Driven Collaboration

Healthy Campus Saskatchewan is leading the first-ever provincial deployment of the Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (CCWS) in the spring of 2021. The results of the CCWS will provide participating institutions with information that will inform strategic planning provincially, regionally and locally. We will collectively identify what’s working well and share innovative approaches across all campus communities.

Community Engagement

Advancing post-secondary student health and wellbeing will be enhanced by reaching out to each other and the broader community. We actively seek partnerships with organizations that share our vision for healthy and resilient campus communities. Through our online Community of Practice forum to our outreach efforts to the broader community, we support collaboration, innovation, and co-creation in the post-secondary education sector.

Health Education, Training, and Awareness

Bringing attention to and advocating for post-secondary student health and wellbeing is core to our mission as a Community of Practice. Through social media, awareness campaigns, Peer Health Outreach Networks, mental health training, discussion forums, and online education opportunities, HCSK will promote and advance student wellness in post-secondary institutions across the province.
