Supervisor Toolkit

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 is designed to provide you with the information and resources needed to support faculty and staff well-being. You have a great influence on the extent to which any member of your team engages or does not engage with wellness opportunities on campus.

In addition to providing information through the toolkit, an in-person workshop is available to supervisors. The workshop gives an overview of wellness needs at Syracuse University, discusses the importance of supervisors promoting wellness and provides hands-on activities to empower leaders to create a healthy department.
