Prioritizing Optimal Health & Well-being at McMaster

Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey

The Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey is the first surveillance tool that was specifically designed for Canadian post-secondary campus use. In the past Canadian institutions have used U.S. based tools such as the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) to assess the health and well-being needs of our campus populations. The Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey represents a Canadian system for information sharing and analysis of institutional-level policies, practices and strategies relevant to campus mental and physical health.

In March 2020, 5,000 of McMaster’s undergraduate students and all of McMaster’s graduate students were invited to participate in the Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey. The results of that survey have now been received by the Office of Institutional Research and Analysis. These results will be shared on this website later this summer.
