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

Through the State of Maryland's new Wellness Program, all Frostburg State University employees may enjoy financial incentives for completing certain “Healthy Activities” required by the Program. In addition, wellness fairs are held once or twice each year and informational sessions regarding such issues as stress reduction, worker safety, smoking cessation, etc. are held monthly. We also conduct blood pressure and cholesterol screenings and Weight Watchers meets on campus every week. A professional staff member in Human Resources works to promote wellness, counseling employees on benefits packages, area resources, hosts an annual fair in which resources are highlighted, and promotes campaigns or programs open to employees through a newsletter.
For students, bWell is a residence hall option for students focusing on healthy lifestyles. Activities for Life hosts low-cost aerobic and fitness classes. We have two free fitness centers on campus, smoking-cessation materials are made available at no cost. The campus Counseling and Psychological Services staff assist students through counseling and referrals to additional area resources.
