At the initial phase, 30 AUN-HPN membered universities and associated universities can participate in the annual Healthy University Rating System. Following this, all universities worldwide with strong intentions to be healthy universities will be invited to join the HURS platform
Universities that participate in the HURS will have the possibility to increase their international visibilities and networking. It is expected that universities that enroll in the HURS network can share their best practices on the healthy university aspects with others through international or local workshops held by the AUN-HPN or local host universities.
Each university can study the requirement and detailed contents of the tool in this guideline book. Subsequently, each university is requested to assign a relevant person to be responsible for the completion of online survey, and provide his/her name together with the email address to our email address aunhpn@Mahidol.ac.th. This step is necessary to generate username and password to access the HURS website. The AUN-HPN Secretariat Office will send the link and password for signing into the online HURS questionnaire to key respondents and data approver of each participating university. The key respondent or a group of respondents will be responsible for filling out the online questionnaire and sending the completed questionnaire to the data approver, being authorized by the rector or president of the university, to recheck the completed questionnaire before submitting it to the AUN-HPN secretariat office.
