USC Healthy Campus will elevate health, well-being, and quality of life for faculty and staff by offering resources, learning opportunities, and programs, and by collaborating with campus and community partners to infuse health and well-being into practices, policies, services, and learning, teaching, and working environments.
These efforts will be made possible with support from Healthy Campus Champion and Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Equity, and Compliance Felicia A. Washington, WorkWell Center Director Dr. Lara Hilton, an Advisory Committee made up of faculty, staff, and administrators, and Associate Director, Health & Well-being Program Julie Chobdee, and in collaboration with USC’s Culture Journey.
