Employee Wellness

The University of Central Oklahoma continually strives to enhance the well-being of faculty and staff through offering a variety of programs and services. The mission of the employee wellness program is to improve the health of our faculty and staff through encouraging and supporting employees to participate in living a healthy lifestyle, by providing diverse programs to meet a range of health needs, recognizing employees for their healthy lifestyle efforts and initiatives, and developing a positive culture that celebrates and is focused on the overall quality of life improvement for all employees. Each month the employee wellness website will have new programs being offered to faculty and staff, events, and other useful information to help faculty and staff maintain and improve their health.
