In this research project, we aim to investigate how a positive attitude toward school life can improve students’ psychological well-being. To achieve this goal, cultivating an inclusive study environment for all students should be a top priority. We conducted and co-organized workshops (i.e., in positive psychology, inclusive education, and mental well-being) with the Department of General Study of the University and one Hong Kong University to strengthen students’ well-being. Through these seminars (intervention), we hope to establish an inclusive school environment in the university that will benefit all students. After the intervention, we found a significant improvement in students’ knowledge of positive psychology (p< .001), attitude toward positive psychology (p< .001), and behavior in positive psychology (p< .001). It showed a moderate to strong correlation in pre and post-test (r = .43 to r = .83, p <.01). The scales’ reliability is strong (α .85 to .94). For the moderation effect, the mean of the three factors ranged from (M = 4.42, SD = 0.82) to (M = 4.90, SD = 0.89). the multiple regression was significant in pr<.001), ΔR2 = 0.19, pre-test score (β = 0.42) and semester effect (β = 0.46). Through this project, we hope to establish a culture of learning diversity in the university.
