Abstract

Healthy University aspires to create a learning environment and organizational culture that enhances the health, well-being and sustainability of its community and enables people to achieve their full potential. Academic performance is the extent to which a student has achieved the educational goals. It was assumed that the students with high academic performance would have a good perception on healthy university concept. The objective of the study was to examine the relationship between academic performance and the perception of healthy university among dental students. The study was an analytical survey conducted to dental students of Prof Dr Moestopo (Beragama) University. Academic performance were calculated using Cumulative GPA (Grade Point Average) scores as a standard way of measuring academic achievement. The data on student perception of healthy university were gathered using a set of questionnaire. The results showed that both the students’ academic performance and the perception of healthy university were good. Results of the Pearson correlation showed a significant positive association between academic performance and perception of healthy university, (r (67) = 0.447, p = 0.000). It was concluded that the academic performance influenced the perception of healthy university among dental students. This understanding can support the planning of promoting healthy university environment.
