Healthy Campus Network Crew

Who we Are

The Healthy Campus Network (HCN) envisions a campus culture that encourages health and wellness activities.  The HCN crew, a group of staff and faculty from departments throughout campus volunteer to support their colleagues to live healthier lifestyles. The HCN achieves this by sharing information about new resources, workshops, and opportunities to engage in wellness programming on campus. Crew members will also engage their peers in team building activities that support a culture of wellness.

What are the Expectations of Crew Members?

Crew members will be asked to keep the staff, faculty, and students in their department aware of programs, events, and resources available on campus and to engage their colleagues in group activities around health and wellness. Specific expectations include:

  • Forward announcements about Healthy Campus Network programs, events, and resources to appropriate departmental listserves (or integrate announcements into departmental emails.)
  • Post flyers about wellness activities where appropriate in your department.
  • Attend one hour-long meeting per quarter to learn about campus wellness programs.
  • Organize one team building activity per quarter around health and wellness.  This could touch on any area of the healthy campus network including physical health, mental/psychological health, social and cultural health, professional and academic health, environmental health, or financial health. Some examples could include planning a walk around the lagoon with your colleagues, having a lunch time potluck or picnic highlighting a healthy recipe, inviting fidelity to offer a financial workshop for staff in your department, gathering together several people from your department to participatein FitSQUAD together, or organizing a group meditation.
  • Encourage colleagues to participate in campus-wide wellness campaigns. This could include the Take the Stairs Campaign, CycleMaynia (planned for May to encourage biking to work), or UC Walks.

Support for Crew Members

This is a volunteer opportunity and does not come with direct compensation.  We encourage staff who are interested in participating to engage their supervisor in a conversation about what time could be used to participate.  Our hope is that supervisors will be motivated to offer some flexibility for staff to support their participation.  This program will help increase overall wellness of employees and students; increase overall morale and camaraderie; and only require a modest amount of time of each crew member.
