CCWS – Faculty and Staff

Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (CCWS)

Thank you for participating in the CCWS for faculty and staff. The CCWS is open from May 6 to May 17, and is a comprehensive, voluntary, and confidential survey that assesses the health and wellbeing of faculty and staff in the post-secondary sector, using validated measures.

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


How long does the survey take?

The survey is estimated to take 15-20 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 faculty and staff is a significant priority for UBC, and this survey is one way we will monitor our progress in implementing our goals and values, as expressed in UBC’s Strategic Plan Shaping UBC’s Next Century, Focus on People and the Wellbeing Strategic Framework.

Why should you participate in the CCWS?

At UBC, we recognize the foundational importance of health and wellbeing to our success as individuals, as a university, and as a community — that is why we are asking for your help.

This survey will help us determine where our wellbeing efforts are working and if we still have work to do. It will also allow us to compare the experience of UBC faculty and staff with other major universities across Canada, giving us a shared framework to inform larger, system-wide changes across higher education.

Our adoption of the Okanagan Charter almost 10 years ago strengthened our commitment to embedding the health and wellbeing of people, places and the planet into the fabric of our institution. By understanding the experience of the people who teach, research, and work at UBC, we can ensure we can continue to meet and improve on those commitments.


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