Well-being at the University of Iowa is a process focused on life-long learning that promotes and sustains optimal health, personal connectedness, meaningful experiences, and a purposeful life.
When employees have a high sense of well-being, they are able to bring their best and authentic selves to work, be physically and mentally prepared to show up, communicate well, and serve the university's missions.
Faculty and staff well-being resources are provided by the Health and Well-being units of University Human Resources: liveWELL, the Employee Assistance Program, and Family Services. Visit our current resource guide for more information on all faculty and staff health and well-being resources.
