CCWS – Staff & Faculty

Thank you for participating in the CCWS for staff and faculty. The CCWS is a comprehensive, voluntary and confidential survey that assesses the health and wellbeing status of staff and faculty in the post-secondary sector, using validated measures.

How long does the survey take?

The survey is estimated to take under 15 minutes to complete.

Why is the CCWS Important?

By participating in the CCWS, post-secondary institutions can be better equipped to support employees, and increase their capacity to link research with policy and practices on campuses and beyond. The wellbeing of staff and faculty is a significant priority for UBC.  This survey is one way in which we will monitor our progress in implementing our goals and values, as expressed in the following UBC plans: UBC’s Strategic Plan Shaping UBC’s Next Century, Focus on People and the Wellbeing Strategic Framework.

Why should you participate in the CCWS?

The CCWS is a Canadian assessment tool to help colleges and universities collect the data they need to support faculty and staff  health and wellbeing overseen by a Technical Advisory Committee made up of Canadian post-secondary institutions and researchers. The questions consist mostly of measures used in existing Canadian health surveillance surveys.

When you participate in the CCWS, you are helping us better understand the wellbeing of staff and faculty working at UBC. Sharing your insights about your health and wellbeing will make sure UBC is supporting our people based on feedback from those who live and work on our campus.

Your participation will provide important feedback that will help shape the programs, services and initiatives that support you at UBC and beyond. It will also allow us to compare UBC employee experiences with those at similar universities across Canada.

Please note that student employees are asked not to take this survey as they received the separate CCWS for Students survey sent in March.


If you have any questions about this project or how we plan to use the results, please contact the local principal investigator Dr. Stephanie McKeown, Chief Institutional Research Officer at
