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

The University of Louisville supports the well-being of the campus community in multiple sustainable ways; this includes policies, programs, services and environmental aspects such as building design and highly efficient energy management systems. UofL’s wellness and sustainability efforts have been in place for some time, but in the last eight years we have taken a more coordinated and strategic approach by bringing together multiple stakeholders and units to work together to achieve our healthy campus goals.

UofL’s healthy campus efforts are highly coordinated through various committee groups and university units (Intramural, Athletics, etc.) that work together to achieve common goals. The Office of Health Promotion (student focus), Get Healthy Now (employee focus) and various committees (21st Century Initiative, Great Places to Work, Sustainability, Dining & Vending Services, Smoke-Free etc.) collaborate with multiple units and stakeholders within the campus community to cross-promote the policies, programs and vast services/resources that support the well-being of our campus community.

Employees who have health insurance coverage through UofL and participate in Get Healthy Now receive a $40 per month reduction on the cost of that insurance. Employees' spouses or qualifying adults who are on the employees' health coverage also can participate in Get Healthy Now. Employees who waive health coverage through UofL can also participate in Get Healthy Now.

Participants have access to:
• Online Health Risk Assessment (required for participation)
• Telephone/e-mail health coaching (required if assessment indicates medium to high risks)
• Online resources through Health Fitness Corp.
• Campus wellness classes
• Group activity classes
• Campus fitness facility dedicated to employees
