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.
The goal of the Employee Wellness Program is to provide awareness, education, and support, ultimately resulting in enduring healthy lifestyle habits. As a means to accomplish the goal, employees are given the opportunity to become educated about healthy lifestyle choices and participate in quality programs. These opportunities enable Washburn employees to take a proactive approach to positive lifestyle improvements.
