A healthier happier York

Posted on 20 February 2023

Today we are delighted to announce the launch of the University of York Strategy for Sport and Active Wellbeing 2023 - 2028.

The strategy outlines our vision for the future of sport, physical activity and wellbeing. Aligned with the University Strategy and wider plans such as Sustainability and Health & Wellbeing, it details our ambitious aims and planned actions. 

Sport and physical activity has a massive role to play in improving the health and wellbeing of our entire university community; staff, students and local neighbours. 

The strategy details our commitment to improving and diversifying our provision of sport, physical and wellbeing activities. Supporting the University's strategic aim, to create an environment of opportunity and respect, the strategy will forge a sense of belonging and inclusion within all sporting and physical wellbeing activities, whatever an individual's circumstances, capabilities and aspirations.

Our objectives are ambitious but achievable. Working collaboratively with our partners, the City of York Council, the Student Unions and all areas of the University, sport at York will expand its reach, be more accessible and engaging, welcoming and inclusive, and more affordable to all audiences and diverse communities.
