MoveU Crew

What We Do: We’ll Help Get You Moving!

The MoveU Crew members will help to enhance campus wellbeing by offering movement breaks in academic classes, conferences, and meetings (such as stretch, dance, or cheer breaks) in partnership with student organizations and staff and faculty members. The MoveU Crew also hosts monthly guided walks and aids the coordination of walking challenges involving students, staff, & faculty so that they are able to better their academic and personal success.

For anyone who wants to book the MoveU Crew for an event/meeting/conference/program.
  • Please fill out this form to invite the MoveU Crew to come to your class/meeting/conference/event. The MoveU Crew will do their best to attend; we love to interrupt sitting anywhere at UBC and teach people about the importance of sitting less and moving more!

    Please note that if you're requesting the MoveU Crew to attend an event/meeting/class that you aren't in charge of, that we will need to ask permission of the person who is coordinating/teaching/hosting so that we make sure we are welcome! We do appreciate the suggestions though, so don't hesitate to let us know if you have a great idea for the MoveU Crew.
  • We will be confirming this information of course!
  • :
  • E.g. is this a recurring class and you'd like us to pop in on any Tuesday or Thursday? If so, let us know below.
  • We want to make sure the MoveU Crew events allow everyone to participate and have fun. We're happy to discuss the MoveU Crew activities with you if you have concerns, whether it's because you're not familiar with the MoveU Crew, you need or want to request accommodations for yourself or other participants, or you're worried about your/your participants' skills, health or some other issue.

    Please check Yes in the box below and we'll contact you in advance of the event to discuss.
