Smoking and Tobacco Cessation Resources for Washburn Employees

A variety of WU benefit programs and local resources are available to assist employees with smoking and tobacco cessation. Click on the link above for resources.

Fitness Assessment

Designed for the individual who would like to begin an exercise program or evaluate their current program. The test will include an initial assessment of cardiovascular endurance, body composition, muscular strength/endurance and flexibility.

Exercise Prescription

Through an individual consultation, based on your fitness assessment outcomes, our wellness staff will design an exercise program to meet your personal fitness goals.

Nutritional Analysis

With the use of nutrition software, we can conduct a complete nutrient analysis of foods you eat and target the problem areas in your diet. An individual consultation will be conducted to discuss your analysis and to provide suggestions for improved nutritional habits.

Smart Orientation

SRWC members can sign-up for an orientation session, individually or as a group, to become familiar with the fitness equipment in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.

Lectures for the Health of It!

Contact the SRWC if you would like to have someone speak to your group or organization on topics such as: Preventative Health, Substance Use and Abuse, Sexual Health, Nutrition and Fitness, Orientation to Wellness, and Stress Management.

Wellness Coaching

Through thoughtful assessment and inquiry, collaborative problem-solving and goal-setting, and safe, open, and honest dialogue, employees become clearer on where they are, where they want to go, and how to get there. Individuals feel accountable to themselves and their coach. They make and honor their commitments to reaching their goals, accomplishing more than they believed possible when they began. Employees are provided instruction and one-on-one mentoring as well as help with setting goals, defining an action plan, and navigating the path until they reach their goals. Learning is facilitated and employees put the learning into action.


Individual consultations provide a confidential atmosphere in which to gain information and knowledge in a nonjudgmental manner. Consultation topics are determined by the employee and range anywhere from prenatal advice, to stress management, to diabetes.

Employee Newsletters

All Washburn employees receive a monthly Employee Wellness Newsletter. The newsletter is intended to educate and inspire employees through an attractive mix of wellness topics, easy-to-read stories and enjoyable illustrations.

Adult CPR/AED/First Aid Certification

While you can't predict when an emergency will occur, you can be prepared. In less time than you think, American Red Cross training can give you the vital knowledge and skills you'll need to respond to a life-threatening situation with confidence.
