How Universities Can Safeguard Students’ Mental Health & Well-being Using Technology

The Need For Student Wellness Tracking Programs In Higher Education. 

As per the latest TimelyMD (telehealth provider) Back-to-School 2022 survey report,

  • 88% of students believe there is a mental health crisis on college campuses in the U.S. 
  • 54% of them agree that increased distress and/or anxiety has impacted the quality of education. 
  • Only 18% of the students said they are getting all resources and support from their academic institution. 

Looking at these stats, it is clear that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought with it many unique challenges and has redefined the way universities approach their educational framework. As the virus turns into an endemic, universities across the country are re-evaluating their campus ecosystems and choosing more holistic student monitoring and assessment models.

This is where adopting an AI-driven SaaS product such as Cocolevio’s Learning Information Management System LIMS can make a huge difference. 

When the emphasis is given to plugging in students’ wellness data points into the campus management software platforms, it helps the policy makers take data-backed actions that create a supportive environment for students to thrive. This Data Analytics (DA) aided process can improve the overall academic success rate of the university tremendously. 


Here are the top three tech-supported trends used in higher education for mapping and promoting students’ wellness quotient: 

1. Measuring performance using regular online surveys and assessments: Mental health support staff and faculty members should be empowered with platforms that help conduct online well-being checks. They can be in the form of simple quizzes, email polls, online community events, etc. Such exercises can also be used to measure the impact of mental health programs done on campus and help universities gauge the stress levels & concerns of students effectively. A stress-free interactive campus creates a ‘safe’ space for students, making college life fun, adaptive, personalized, and a lot more inclusive.

2. IoT for Smart Campus: The Internet of Things (IoT) devices can keep the campus members (students, faculty, and administrators) connected and well-informed. They can be used effectively for the following purposes: 

  • Worry notifications and requests for counseling 
  • Routine alarms for better time management 
  • Automated security system integration for campus surveillance 
  • Automatic enforcement of identification and authentication for campus permissions 
  • One-click confidential access to mental health advisors.  
  • Sense of community – Personalized communication from the university management generates a sense of belongingness for the students. It also makes students more participative in community activities. 

In the recent Salesforce report, it was seen that, 

77% of students said that getting personalized messages made them feel their college cared about their success. 

28% of students felt their institution’s online communities gave them a sense of belonging during the pandemic. 

3. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data analytics – By integrating a dynamic, AI-driven analytical tool into the university’s Information Management Systems, the institution can process data intelligently and get intuitive insights into their students’ academic progress and overall well-being. Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Management is changing the way universities manage their student relationships, performance assessments, and curriculum development strategies.
