2022 Deployment of the Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (CCWS) – A Canadian health and wellbeing assessment tool for Canadian campuses
Planning for the Winter 2022 deployment of the CCWS is now under way. The CCWS aims to help post-secondary institutions assess health and wellbeing on campuses, identify priorities for intervention, and increase capacity to link research with policy and practice. Participating in the CCWS in 2022 provides an opportunity to collect data that will help to set a new baseline as we look to post-pandemic recovery. Aligned with the National Standard for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students, the CCWS vision is for a comprehensive and coordinated evaluation system for Canadian post-secondary student mental and physical health and wellbeing. Participating institutions receive a customized dataset for their own institution, as well as access to an interactive reporting tool (Tableau dashboard) to allow for comparisons between data for non-identified institutions, allowing for knowledge and resource sharing. The CCWS is now available to all post-secondary institutions across Canada with over 50 institutions participating so far.
