Mission and Purpose
The Wellness Committee was developed in February of 2009. The committee was put in place by a group of various staff and faculty with an interest in the Health and Wellness of our campus community. The Wellness Committee was developed “to create a supportive environment that promotes choosing wellness and taking personal responsibility for health.”
- Our goals are to bring awareness, information, and opportunities pertaining to wellness and leading a healthy lifestyle to the entire Trocaire community
- Foster a culture that is supportive of one another and promotes healthy lifestyle choices
- Build and strengthen relationships between the college and community by joining community wellness initiatives
- Cultivate wellness programs that support the College’s mission and strategic plan
