Support For a Healthier Mind and Body
Physical and emotional well-being contribute to your success in work and in life. Our programs and resources encourage employees to learn more about taking better care of themselves and making positive lifestyle choices.
The FGCU Employee Wellness committee aims to establish and maintain a worksite that encourages environmental and social support for a healthy lifestyle. We promote and encourage wellness practices for faculty and staff through education and programs.
