About the
Employee Wellness Program

What is an Employee Wellness Program?

It is a FREE and voluntary employee health and wellness program offered to ALL university employees. Its purpose is to promote a healthy lifestyle, increase wellness awareness, and build camaraderie among colleagues. The program hosts a variety of wellness challenges and events throughout the year that include guest speakers, luncheons, and appreciation banquets to celebrate your success! The program is utilized to reward healthy behaviors through incentivizing medical insurance premiums. Employees who participate in employee wellness activities earn points towards their insurance premium for the following calendar year.  ALL communication comes directly from the Employee Wellness team which includes a partnership with human resources and the College of Science, Technology, and Health. 

Who is eligible to participate?
