Educating the whole person means supporting well-being after graduation

College grads grade their higher education: A recent survey, developed by Gallup and Purdue University to help schools gauge their effectiveness in preparing students for long-term success, shows there is room for improvement when it comes to overall fulfillment for college grads. Other institutions, including Wake Forest, are developing their own instruments. A study of well-being “is really an outgrowth of our goals, which is that we educate the whole student,” says Penny Rue, vice president for campus life at Wake Forest. “We just want to be able to know that we’re making difference.”
