Framing Well-Being in a College Campus Setting: A Partnership with Aetna Student Health
The American College Health Foundation, with generous sponsorship from Aetna Student Health, has published a white paper entitled "Framing Well-Being in a College Campus Setting." The purpose of this project was to examine the state of the field of well-being at a diverse sample of institutions of higher education. Looking at well-being initiatives through the lens of both student and employee stakeholders, the researchers reveal new trends in creating cultures of care on campus. This paper presents major themes, lessons learned, and questions for the future of well-being and is appropriate for campuses looking to explore the transition from a health and wellness paradigm to a more holistic approach to campus well-being.
