University invites student input on health and wellness

February 7, 2013


Thousands of Queen’s students have been selected to participate in the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) survey of student health and wellness. The students have been randomly selected and in the coming days will be receiving an email invitation to participate.

“The survey provides an opportunity for our students to help improve programs and services and perhaps spark new ideas for student support around health and wellness,” says Mike Condra, Director of Health, Counselling and Disability Services.

Approximately 40 per cent of Queen’s students – 6,000 undergraduate students and 1,000 graduate students – are invited to participate in the 64-question online survey. The survey will remain open for three weeks. Participation is confidential and voluntary. Students who complete the survey will have the chance to win one of 10 $50 gift cards for the Campus Bookstore.

Staff and faculty members who receive questions from students or want more information about the survey are encouraged to contact Kate Humphrys in Health, Counselling and Disability Services for more information.
