In an important effort to improve the well-being of The University of Toledo campus community, Student Affairs and Human Resources have partnered with the American College Health Association on a survey designed to assess student, faculty and staff health behaviors and perceptions.

Information gathered from the National College Health Assessment and the National Faculty and Staff Health Assessment survey will be used to provide better well-being services and support for the UToledo campus community including programming and policies. The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete and participation is crucial to gathering adequate information about our campus communities’ perceptions and behaviors related to health.

“This is the first time UToledo will be offering a survey to the campus population that specifically pertains to well-being,” said Andrea Masters, employee wellness consultant. “We are excited to learn more about our employee population and how we can support them with effective well-being programs.”

Students and employees who are selected as part of the random sample will receive an invitation email on Jan. 3. The confidential survey will be available for three weeks.

“The survey is voluntary and confidential,” said Rachael Decker, associate director of programs and assessment. “We encourage those who are selected to complete the survey to make a positive impact on the future of campus well-being.”

Students who complete the National College Health Assessment will be entered in a drawing to win a $50 Starbucks gift card.
