Annual Summit
 - Advancing Collective Action on Campus Mental Health and Substance Use - 

2016 Theme
Cultivating a Campus Culture
of Well-being with Intention:
Aligning Policies, Practices and Core Mission

The Venue
The "UN-style" plenary space at the Wosk Centre for Dialogue has 154 seats. Designed to support the kind of active engagement that is a cornerstone of our Summits, the venue is an ideal fit but means we have a registration limit this year. 

Holding a strong commitment to facilitating participation from across British Columbia, the Summit Planning Committee adopted a new process for registration. 

Registration Process
In an effort to create equal opportunity for campuses across the province to register (before fully opening registration), an invitation to select 4 delegates per public post-secondary institution was sent to the President, VP Students (or equivalent) and Student Union.

They were invited to coordinate identifying change champions from their campus to take advantage of the "designated delegate" seats who have an interest in or responsibility for mental health and substance use, campus services, teaching and learning, strategic planning and/or student retention.

On February 18 all remaining seats will be available for open registration.
