Student and Life Outcomes That Matter
Be certified as the well-being university that leads students to lifelong success.
Are your students truly thriving?
They don't capture if students truly thrive -- socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.
Progressive institutions are examining and promoting well-being, recognizing it as a measure that increases their value, helps them meet new education demands from families and fuels achievement of their central promise -- to set graduates on a course for meaningful, fulfilled and engaged lives.
Gallup's Well-Being University Certification is a partnership with university leaders to measure and improve education initiatives in a way that encompass all student achievements -- not impersonal rankings, but qualitative, experiential aspects that gear students toward success.
A focus on well-being counters the headwinds of student mental health challenges.
Identify drivers of well-being on your campus and amplify them for your whole campus community.
A tailored strategy to promote campus well-being.
We help forward-focused universities reorient their institutional resources, practices and policies to create environments that support whole-person growth and fully engaged, fulfilled students, alumni, faculty and staff.
Gallup's Well-Being University Certification process includes:
- measuring top drivers of well-being and engagement on campus through The Well-Being 5
- identifying key characteristics of thriving and languishing populations, as well as risk and resiliency factors
- naming opportunities to improve programs and experiences to prepare students for the future
- assessing current well-being efforts and identifying areas of strength and opportunity
- tailoring interventions to meet the needs of specific campus populations
- analyzing whether and how new efforts are achieving their intended outcomes
Our Well-Being University initiatives not only promote personal fulfillment and meaning, but they also encourage actions that counter the headwinds of student mental health challenges.
