Professor Guy Faulkner and Kelly Wunderlich (School of Kinesiology, UBC) present on the Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (CCWS) with an overview of results from the cohort of British Columbian institutions participating in the winter/spring of 2020.
The presentation provides an overview of provincial results, demonstrates the feedback mechanism through which data is communicated to institutions, and highlights examples of how the CCWS research database is being used. Perspectives on the tableau interface through which results are communicated (Jeff Burrow, University of Toronto) and how the CCWS is being used by one institution (Matt Dolf, University of British Columbia) will be shared. A final discussion on the potential to use the CCWS to inform institutional practices and programming is facilitated.
