NCHA 2016 Student Health and Wellness Survey
Queen’s is committed to enhancing student health and wellness.
The university participated in the NCHA national student survey in February-March 2016 that will give us an up-to-date picture of student health and wellness at Queen’s and across the country.
The data we are collecting will help us further improve programs and services. Preliminary results will be available in Summer 2016.
Queen's is one of 32 Canadian post–secondary institutions that took part in this survey in 2013. More than 1,200 Queen’s students participated; the results were analysed to consider different segments of the student population, including first-years, undergraduates, graduate and professional students and international students. Queen's has compared its findings to the Canadian student population, as well as Ontario university students.
This slide deck (PDF, 8.8MB) provides an overview of the Queen's 2013 results. There is information about physical activity, eating habits, sleep, stress, sexual health, sexual violence, mental health, relationships, and hazing.
New wellness programming that has been implemented based on this data includes:
- Athletic and Recreation’s “Get your 150” campaign;
- Peer-led health promotion workshops and resources focusing on:
- A new financial literacy program delivered by the Chaplain.
