Well-being

Calendar  6th July 2022 - 5:50pm IST

Wellbeing, as a positive outcome, is meaningful for youth and it results from holistic approaches towards social, physical, physiological, psychological, and mental aspects. Higher educational institutions can play a great role in developing the wellbeing among young adults. Wellbeing is increasingly conceptualized at institutional level in a collective form by the educational ecosystem. It can help the students in achieving personal and social goals as the wellbeing and learning outcomes have strong linkages. Teaching and learning systems, collaborations can be used as a measure to aware, create interest, and take action in this regard.
