A brief description of the employee wellness program, policy, or practice:

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Wellness Programs foster an environment that supports the health and well-being of its employees. According to a business impact matrix produced by Alliance for Work-Life Progress (AWLP), companies that instituted wellness programs saw a reduction in hospital admissions, mental health visits and outpatient services reported by their employees.

Faculty and staff are able to purchase a membership to the Student Fitness Center (SFC). The SFC has a Wellness Center that offers a wide range of physical fitness programs such as Belly Dancing, Body Sculpt, Bootcamp, Cardio Core, SPIN®, Yoga, and Zumba®, among others.

Persons who prefer the outdoors may opt for a walk through The Gardens. Employees also have the option to go biking or running on one of the easily accessible trails on campus. Employees also meet on campus to go for group walks. Contact Alpona Simmons at (618) 650-5302 to learn more about SIUE Walkers Anonymous, a community-driven walking group.
