To continue its climb as a great global university based in Singapore, NTU must be a community that is open and welcoming to all individuals and one that provides its members a safe environment and equal opportunities for learning and working.
Three goals are set for this core pillar:
We will strengthen our efforts to build a community that strives to ensure the wellbeing and quality of life and work for all its members.
As a highly diverse and cosmopolitan community, NTU is committed to treating all its members with respect, fairness and equal opportunity.
We will nurture a strong OneNTU spirit grounded in a set of core values shared by our community.
University Wellbeing Office
From April 2021, a new University Wellbeing Office will provide a strong support ecosystem for employees and students.
With positive mental health as a key priority, it will coordinate new efforts, including strengthening a culture of mutual respect and collegial support, expanding preventive and outreach programmes, ensuring timely intervention, improving counselling services, and strengthening policies, procedures and partnerships.
For students, NTU aims to strengthen four essential areas: counselling; preventive programming; critical incident management; and policies and partnerships that support student wellbeing.
This initiative will engage widely within the NTU community to develop and nurture the OneNTU spirit.
- Nurture shared values
- Engage key stakeholders including alumni
- Undertake longitudinal surveys to gauge and improve employee and student engagement
This initiative focuses on the engagement of the University’s alumni, partners, industry collaborators, foundations and other stakeholders to strengthen the efforts of university advancement.
