SDG 3: Good Health and Well Being

Current Collaborations with Health Institutions

We are committed to promoting the health and well-being of our students. Recognizing the importance of collaborative efforts in achieving this goal, we actively collaborate with health non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to enhance the overall health services and support available to our students.

We are proud to announce that any programs or events organized by these health NGOs will receive our full support and endorsement. We believe that by working together, we can create a healthier and more inclusive campus environment that fosters the holistic development of our students.

Jesselton University College welcomes partnerships and long-term collaborations with health institutions and NGOs that share our vision and mission. We believe in the power of collective action and are open to exploring innovative initiatives, research collaborations, health campaigns, and educational programs that can contribute to the improvement of student health and well-being.

Together, we can create a campus community that prioritizes the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of our students, enabling them to thrive academically and personally. If you are a health institution or NGO interested in collaborating with us, we invite you to reach out to us and join us in making a positive impact on the health landscape of our college.
