As a supervisor, you have a unique opportunity to create a wellness culture within your area—and the Wellness Initiative can support you in those efforts. This page offers quick links to some of the many wellness resources and support at the University.
The University Wellness Initiative supports the health and wellness of Syracuse University faculty and staff by providing them with programs and resources to make healthy choices, and by fostering a culture of wellness. By promoting wellness within their departments, Wellness Champions are an integral part of this initiative. If your department does not already have a Wellness Champion, identify one for your unit/area or ask for a volunteer. There are currently 45 champions across campus.
Carebridge is our Faculty and Staff Assistance Program partner. Carebridge provides a full suite of comprehensive benefits and services.
