Assessment and Research
Research findings have pointed to the importance of wellbeing - living a balanced life - in our professional and personal endeavors. We have reviewed past studies, and collected some data, to help us develop data-informed initiatives on campus.
The report of findings from the Campus Wellbeing Assessment are available here. These data, along with other information gathered from the Wellbeing Subcommittees, have helped to inform the wellbeing initiatives on campus
