A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):

Description of the Wellness Program: http://www.bucknell.edu/wellness
The Bucknell University Be Smart, Be Well, Be YOU wellness initiative began in 2011 as part of a broader focus on health care at Bucknell. The program was formally launched by President Bravman in the fall of 2012 with the goal of creating a culture of wellness, developing tools and systems to support healthy behaviors and lifestyles, managing rising health care costs through education, and promoting holistic wellness.

The comprehensive wellness initiative educates, motivates, and empowers Bucknell faculty, staff, and their dependents to be actively engaged in improving their quality of life. The wellness initiative seeks to share information, strategies, and resources to support a healthy campus culture which positively impacts individual faculty and staff members, as well as the campus, their families, and the communities in which they live.
