Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey results will inform student well-being initiatives at York
In 2022, students completed the Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (CCWS), which enabled the University to learn about their well-being needs and support its diverse student population.
In the last year, results were shared broadly across departments to increase awareness of the mental health issues faced by students and communicate identified priorities for intervention.
The national survey, coordinated by the University of British Columbia, is designed to help Canadian post-secondary institutions better support whole campus health and wellbeing. Since 2013, York had participated in the American National College Health Assessment but decided to issue the CCWS to better assess the needs of Canadian post-secondary students.
York plans to issue the CCWS every three years.
