Employee Wellness at Washburn

The mission of the Washburn University Employee Wellness Program is to promote a culture of wellness by facilitating a supportive environment that encourages university faculty and staff to initiate and maintain behaviors that enhance their total health. Total health includes elements of emotional, intellectual, physical, social, occupational, environmental, and spiritual wellness.

All benefits-eligible employees of Washburn University and the Washburn University Foundation have the opportunity to participate in the employee wellness program.

The Employee Wellness Program was established in 2006.

Letter from the President:

The mission of the Washburn University Employee Wellness Program is to facilitate an environment encouraging faculty and staff to enhance their health. Washburn University has made a substantial investment in this program, but it is really an investment in you. Most of us spend almost as much with our work family as we do with our own family. We are attached to, invested in, and care about each other. Our wish for every member of the Washburn employee family is to be happy and healthy.

Your wellness has direct benefits to Washburn University beyond how much we care about you as a person. Your health and wellness helps our university enjoy a level of energy and drive allowing us to be a culture of achievement and excellence. We want you to be at the top of your game and your health is an essential element.

If you are part of the Wellness Program, we are delighted you want to continue. Recruit a co-worker. If you are new or considering participation, just start. Do what you can to enjoy a better life.
