Working on Campus During COVID

During our transition back to full time and hybrid work on campus, the Wellness Program is offering a variety of resources, including some one time Zoom sessions, to help faculty and staff better manage their work life balance.


Community Conversation 

Join the Wellness Team in our monthly Community Conversation. We will spend time together discussing a specific topic focused on health and well-being for ourselves and within the university. Please consider attending to lend your voice to the conversation, forge stronger ties with other faculty and staff, and expand your individual and collective well-being.

New Fall Events = TBD


How to Stay Sane, Resilient and Positive During Uncertain Times

The pandemic and uncertainty of what’s to come can easily leave one feeling anxious, depressed, scattered, and lonely. This can affect how we show up at work and in our personal lives. While it may feel chaotic, the good news is that each of us has more control than we think. By using simple evidence-based techniques, you can bolster your resilience, positivity, and sense of togetherness even amidst change.

Positive psychology expert and executive coach, Stella Grizont, presented an interactive webinar to learn how to not just cope, but thrive through uncertain times.

Wellness Program Note

During this period of transition, the Wellness Program is continuing to offer our classes via Zoom Meetings. While we prefer that you attend at the class time, so that you can take part in discussion, ask questions, etc., we understand that your schedule is complicated. So all registrants will receive a video after the class. After viewing the video, participants will be able to sign the attendance sheet for that class. If you have any questions, please contact Zach.
