Well-Being University Certification

Student and Life Outcomes That Matter

Be certified as the well-being university that leads students to lifelong success.

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.
