UC Wellbeing Strategy review

The University of Canterbury | Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha (UC) is committed to supporting the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community.

There is a broad range of wellbeing-related services and spaces offered on campus. These services have, to varying degrees, a direct and indirect impact on an individual’s wellbeing in a range of ways, including:

  • health – mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and sexual
  • social support
  • academic support
  • cultural, diversity and equity support
  • financial support.

Tell us what you think

UC is undertaking a review of our current wellbeing strategy – students, staff and our partners are an integral part of this process and we would value your input.

We want to find out how you feel about your own wellbeing and how well you are supported at UC, how we might improve our communications around wellbeing and where you think responsibility lies. Your feedback will be used to help shape UC’s new wellbeing strategy.

Discussion document and survey

A UC Wellbeing Strategy Discussion Document has been produced to provide context around wellbeing at UC. This document will support your knowledge around the current experience of wellbeing on campus and help you to answer a short survey – either online or paper-based.

The survey is designed to provide UC with information about our community’s experiences of wellbeing and this data will be analysed to support the development of a wellbeing strategy and implementation plan for 2020 and beyond.

Please submit your feedback by 14 June 2019.
