Health Promotion Through Sports and Physical Activities

As an educational institution with its sports and exercise programs, University Sports assumes an important role in the area of health promotion. As such it has cofounded and heavily influenced the development of health promotion and health promoting structures at RWTH. As well as providing a varied offering of courses and the Pausenexpress, University Sports promotes everyday movement and activity for students and employees through a variety of projects (Currently: “Moving University” and “Active Campus Europe”).

University Sports works closely with Operational Health Management and the Student Health Management of RWTH Aachen University in many areas of health promotion. Initiatives like the digital Health Week 2021 under he motto "body.mind.soul" and the Step Counter Team Challenge have already been implemented as part of this cooperation.
