HLI Meet and Greet

The Healthy Living Initiative taskforce invites community agencies to campus for Welcome Week to aquaint students with local resources.


The UTC Healthy Living Initiative (HLI) strives to cultivate an environment that supports the wellbeing of our students, faculty and staff by translating lifestyle/behavioral choices and research into action, embracing innovation, and encouraging positive change on the individual and community level.  The HLI promotes healthy living through engaging, dynamic and educational programming and services for the UTC community. 

Our programming and services aim to empower all to reach their fullest potential through holistic wellness by maximizing health promoting behaviors and minimizing harmful behaviors during their living and learning experience here at UTC and beyond.

Opportunities for reflection, connection, practice, and mobilization across different dimensions of wellness are offered throughout the year by HLI and their valuable student affairs and academic partners.
