SFU Health Promotion Receives $10,000 Grant

September 2012

In collaboration with a campus research partner (David Zandvliet in the Faculty of Environment), the SFU Health Promotion team has been successful in attaining a $10,000 research grant and a $1,000 seminar grant from Bringing Theory to Practice, an organization affiliated with the American Association of Colleges and Universities.

Part of creating a healthy campus community includes investigating classroom impacts on well-being. A participatory action research design is proposed to investigate how classroom environments at the post-secondary level can be harnessed to enhance student well-being, engaged learning and civic development.

Further development of resources that will assist instructors in supporting student well-being are also part of this collaborative research project.
