The University recently launched its Well-Being and Health Strategy to students and colleagues. The strategy aims to ensure that the well-being and health of our students, colleagues and wider community remain at the heart of what we do so they can reach their potential, be successful, and enjoy their time at USW. It was developed at the start of the pandemic, to cover the period 2020-2022, but consultation with key stakeholders was not possible due to the restrictions in place at the time.
We are now reviewing the strategy, in order to inform the development of the next version (2022 – 2024 and possibly beyond), and this gives the opportunity to engage students and colleagues in a way that we were unable to during 2020. We are very keen to ensure that feedback is captured and used to shape our future support and interventions in this critical area.
We have appointed an external facilitator to conduct a series of focus groups with both students and colleagues, at each campus, plus an online session. The current strategy document will be discussed, with attendees having the opportunity to explore the areas they feel are strong points, areas that need to be strengthened, and identify what is missing. The subject matter lends itself to face-to-face discussions. If you are interested in contributing to this consultation exercise, please sign up for one of the following sessions:
Tuesday 5 April 2022 11.30am – 1.00pm
Wednesday 6 April 2022 2.30pm – 4.00pm
Wednesday 13 April 2022 1.30pm – 3.00pm
Wednesday 6 April 10.30am – 12.00pm
