Project Details


The project is to provide a holistic appreciation of immigrant, minority and mainstream students’ well-being and engagement with life. Founded on the frameworks of life satisfaction (Huebner, 2001), spiritual health (Fisher, 1999; 2008), academic engagement (Appleton et al., 2008) and civic engagement (Schulz et al.,2008), this study focuses on identifying the structural relationships between the individual and contextual variables and the engagement of immigrant, minority and mainstream students with school and society. A multidimensional approach combining a questionnaire instrument survey with case studies is employed to deepen understanding of the complexities of well-being among different student groups.
