Campus Wellness For Faculty/Staff
USC faculty and staff have diverse needs that are different from those of students. Campus Wellness offers a variety of programs and services, from fitness to stress-management, to help meet those needs.
We offer on-going drop-in and appointment-based preventive health screenings and services at the Solomon Blatt Physical Education Center (Room 201), Strom Thurmond Wellness and Fitness Center (lower level) and the Thomson Student Health Center. Services are either free or available to faculty and staff at a low cost.
Presentations and Workshops
Campus Wellness offers a variety of presentations and workshops for faculty and staff. Topics include health-related issues and behaviors such as nutrition, exercise and physical activity, stress management, weight management, disease prevention and management. If one of our existing presentations or workshops does not meet your needs, we are happy to tailor a program for your group.
Making healthy choices on a regular basis can be difficult! Campus Wellness recognizes that knowledge is power and that support and accountability can be key factors contributing to successful behavior change. Several multi-week programs are offered throughout the academic year to help individuals create and sustain healthy lifestyles.
