The Tertiary Wellbeing Aotearoa New Zealand (TWANZ) network aims to support local, national and international collaboration and initiatives to increase the health and wellbeing of staff and students through systemic change in tertiary settings across Aotearoa New Zealand.

A focus on health and wellbeing within tertiary institutions is gaining momentum within Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world. TWANZ is guided by the principles outlined in the international framework for health promotion in higher education (Okanagan Charter), while reflecting the uniqueness of Aotearoa settings, knowledge and populations.

This website provides a database of the TWANZ network and latest news, as well as a forum, core resources, and case studies to guide and support best practice health promotion activities and policies to promote staff and student wellbeing.

The TWANZ network consists of tertiary and health promotion stakeholders with the purpose of facilitating collaboration, share ideas, resources, experiences and successes.
