Well-being in Policy & Settings

Well-being in Academic Settings

Academic departments and faculties strongly influence students’ experiences at university and provide a core setting for enhancing student well-being.

To learn how to embed well-being in academic settings see the Embedding Well-being in Academic Settings Casebook.


Well-being through Policy

Policy has a profound ability to impact student well-being. A policy may cause undue stress, anxiety, or confusion or it can facilitate access to resources, services, and supports.

To learn how to embed well-being through policy see: Well-being through SFU Policies and Procedures: A Guide for Action and Worksheet.
