News from the Wellness Committee

Thank you to all who participated in our recent employee wellness survey!  We appreciate the feedback received from the nearly 300 employees who participated. In the next few months, the committee will be working diligently to incorporate this helpful information into our new wellness program, which will be rolled out at the start of the spring semester.

As a special thanks, we are happy to announce that the following employees have won the random drawing for gift cards generously donated by BSI, the university’s employee benefits advisors:

$25 Healthy Options Restaurant Gift Cards:

  • Jessica Buickus
  • Maria Grandinetti
  • Courtney Lomax
  • Nicole Stapleton

$50 Dick’s Sporting Goods:

  • John Franklin
  • Marica Harowicz

As you may recall from the survey, part of our comprehensive mind, body and spirit approach to wellness will include a focus not only on physical, but psychological, spiritual and social well-being as well.  To that end, we welcome information about resources or volunteers from our campus community with wellness-related knowledge and expertise to share ideas or recommend courses, programs and opportunities for the committee to explore.  If you or someone you know would be interested, please e mail Kristin Pitarra, human resources director.  We look forward to receiving your input and ideas!

Thank you again for your interest and support of this important initiative!  More news to come soon!
