UC is committed to supporting the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community. There’s a range of services and spaces on campus that have a direct and indirect impact on an individual’s wellbeing.
We’re reviewing our wellbeing strategy and want to know how you feel about your wellbeing and how you are supported at UC, and how UC could improve. Your feedback will help shape UC’s wellbeing strategy for 2020 and beyond.
Are you an international student? The University has asked an independent research agency, i-graduate, to gather feedback on your experiences at UC. This is your opportunity to tell us what’s working, what’s not working and what you think of your university experience so far.
The International Student Barometer (ISB) survey will be sent to your UClive email address – keep an eye out for it from Monday 6 May. The survey only takes around 15 minutes.
By completing the ISB survey, you will play a part in enhancing the student experience for current and future students.
As a thank you, i-graduate is offering all participants the opportunity to:
win a $1,000 cash prize, or
choose a charity to receive a $1,000 donation.
Check your UClive email next week, fill out the survey by Friday 24 May, and be in to win – it’s that easy!
Electric scooters have become a hot topic in Aotearoa New Zealand cities over the last few months. Whether you’ve used a scooter or not, UC researchers urge you to complete their Electric Scooters in NZ Cities survey.
Dr Helen Fitt from UC’s Department of Geography | Te Tari Mātai Matawhenua says “we are trying to get a broad range of perspectives on scooter use as part of a wider project on the impacts of emerging transport technologies. Compared to more established modes of transport, there has been little systematic research exploring scooter use. This makes it difficult to assess the potential social, health, and environmental impacts of scooter use. Without this data, it will be challenging to establish evidence-based views and policy.”
Anonymous survey data will later be made publicly available helping to fill the data gaps that currently exist.
The researchers add “we really want to hear from you regardless of whether you think scooters are an urban scourge, an absolute delight, or something in between. Please feel free to share the survey link widely. We would love to hear from people all over Aotearoa New Zealand and with all sorts of different views”.
