Active UCC

We want to create and provide opportunities for all our students and staff to grow and increase participation in all forms of physical activity  in UCC . Our priorities are:

  • Design and launch #ActiveUCC to co-ordinate and promote physical activity through all our programmes (including our campus-wide UCC Made2Move programme), and to co-ordinate physical activity and health enhancing initiatives with the aim of being Ireland’s first university green and active flags and most active campus.
  • Reward and recognise participation to demonstrate UCC’s belief in the value of health and wellbeing.
  • Work with the extended community in Cork and the region – ie schools, Cork Sports Partnership, local agencies, sports groups, outdoor education and adventure sports sector to promote and develop sport and physical activity
