Wellness Committee

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.”
