Wellness@Work Champions

The Wellness@Work Champions program was launched in September 2017, with an open recruitment for any faculty or staff who were interested in being involved.  Within a few months, the Champions program has expanded to include over 90 employees at the University, who are eager to help create a healthy work environment for all. 

Champions come from a variety of different departments and locations and receive regular communications from the Wellness@Work Advisory Committee and Coordinator. They actively promote upcoming events and programs, distribute resources and information, encourage colleagues to participate or share their feedback, and are enthusiastic ambassadors for Wellness@Work.  Champions meet in-person at least once per semester.
