What is “Wellness?” It is a lifestyle. A way of living that encourages good physical and mental health. It is a balanced lifestyle that includes an emphasis on the body, mind and spirit.

UCR cares about your health. The UCR Faculty and Staff Wellness Program was created to encourage all faculty, staff, and retirees to live healthier lifestyles and create a culture of health throughout the campus.

UCR prioritizes the health and quality of life of the campus community and offers resources and expertise to support a healthy and high performing workforce.

The UCR Wellness Initiative is a collaborative partnership of campus resources with the goal of helping the campus community along the path to a vibrant, healthy and balanced lifestyle. This will be attained through:

  • Integrated wellness programs
  • Resources that promote the importance of maintaining an optimal quality of life
  • Fostering a culture of health and wellness
