Volunteer to Be Wellness Champion

Faculty and staff dedicated to facilitating a culture and environment of wellness are needed as Wellness Champion volunteers to lead their college, unit or department in the Well Wolfpack program, an initiative jointly offered by University Recreation and the Human Resources benefits office.

Volunteers passionate about their well-being who are committed to a healthy workplace can help their departments become Well Wolfpack-certified by communicating health and wellness activities to their colleagues, encouraging and motivating staff and faculty participation, planning and conducting wellness activities and working to promote health and wellness in their units.

Applications to volunteer are open until July 1.

There are, of course, a few eligibility requirements. Employees must:

  • Be SHRA, EHRA, EHRA-Faculty with greater than 0.749 FTE and have a nine-month contract/appointment or greater at NC State.
  • Be in good standing with no active/pending disciplinary actions or documented disciplinary actions within the preceding 18 months.
  • Receive approval from supervisor and department head to participate.
  • Be able to attend and complete the mandatory NC State Wellness Champion training on July 20, 2016.
  • Be committed to being an NC State Wellness Champion for the 2016-2017 academic year.

For departments, the Well Wolfpack certification distinguishes those that have made a commitment to cultivating a culture of wellness within the workplace environment. Becoming Well Wolfpack Certified can be achieved by fostering health and wellness within the workplace.

To achieve a level of the Well Wolfpack certification, departments can complete an application, which includes the following criteria: active workplace, nutrition, stress and emotional well-being, community and leadership and wellness.

Volunteers and certified departments will be recognized for their efforts in the spring of 2017.
