Health and wellbeing are linked to environmental health. UCI prioritizes human health through its built environment and initiatives. The built environment is intentionally designed in a way that prioritizes air quality and access to natural areas. The campus is built with the naturescape intentionally accessible for all to enjoy.
The UC Policy on Sustainable Practices sets forth guidelines for campuses to follow in supporting healthy campuses. These include UC Healthy Vending Guidelines, policy recommendations, and more.
