The Certification reflects IULM's dedication to implementing policies and initiatives improving health and the quality of life on campus. IULM has in fact adopted a series of activities aimed at promoting physical and mental health within its community. Some of the concrete efforts that have contributed to the success achieved are: programs for physical activity accessible to all, projects aimed at combating stress and promoting mental health management along with awareness campaigns on the importance of proper nutrition, and programs focused on social and environmental sustainability.

The Rector's Proxy for sports, Dr. Grazia Murtarelli, warmly welcomed this recognition:

"We are truly proud to announce that Università IULM has received the Healthy Campus Certification from the International University Sports Federation (FISU). This prestigious recognition is a demonstration of the ongoing efforts of the university in promoting a healthy lifestyle within our university community, in the belief that a healthy university environment is fundamental for academic and personal success."

On this important occasion, the Rector, Prof. Gianni Canova, expressed his satisfaction with this important achievement fully aligned with the future vision of the University:

"At IULM we think of the campus not only as a place of learning but also as an environment that inspires and supports a balanced lifestyle. This certification represents not only a milestone achieved but also a starting point for further improvements and innovations.

I sincerely thank every member of our community - students, faculty, and staff - for their fundamental contribution to this journey towards excellence in health and wellness. Together, we will continue to work to maintain and elevate the standards that have allowed us to achieve this prestigious recognition."

The Healthy Campus certification not only recognizes the work done by the university but also allows IULM to serve as a role model at the national and international levels. Università IULM joins the group of 133 universities certified by FISU worldwide, only 3 of which are in Italy, confirming its leading role in promoting a university environment inspiring a balanced and stimulating lifestyle.
