A Year of Wellness & Action

President Jenny Coyle invites Pacific University faculty and staff to take part in a year of Wellness & Action.

This 2022-2023 academic year initiative invites employees to focus on one health and wellness theme every two months. Completely voluntary, the initiative will provide resources associated with the theme, and employees are invited to launch each theme session with a personalized 21-day challenge.

Resources and sample activities will be available for each theme, and employees are invited to customize their own study and activities to their own journeys in health, literacy, and taking new action steps. Employees also may join the Wellness Challenges Google Group to engage in conversation about their learnings. (Go to groups.google.com, choose "all groups," then scroll to find the Wellness Challenge and join. Once you've joined, you'll be able to send and receive messages to the group at wellnesschallenges@groups.pacificu.edu.)

The themes are:

  • Cultural and Social Health | September & October
  • Mental Health | November & December
  • Intellectual Health | January & February
  • Physical Health | March & April

Volunteer to curate resources for an upcoming theme at wellnesschallenges@groups.pacificu.edu.
