Sacramento State is proud to be an award-winning healthy campus. We recognize that health and wellbeing are inextricably linked with student and employee success. Sacramento State prioritizes holistic wellness efforts across campus based on the 7 Dimensions of Wellness: Intellectual, Emotional, Environmental, Physical, Career/Financial, Spiritual, and Socio-Cultural.
Wellness in the Work Place
Worksite wellness programs have many benefits, including improved employee health, job satisfaction, recruitment and retention; increased productivity; and reduced absenteeism. Sacramento State offers wellbeing activities, a newsletter, and other resources to employees. In addition, many of the health benefits plans offered at Sac State provide preventive services such as smoking cessation support – contact your individual health plan for more information.
Wellness in Policies and Places
People’s health behaviors and sense of wellbeing are intimately connected to their environment. Sac State is committed to creating a healthy campus environment to support all members of the Hornet community.
Wellness in the Classroom
Positive well-being is an important predictor of learning and student success. Research indicates a strong connection between student wellbeing, deep learning, and impactful teaching practices.
By making small adjustments to their teaching processes, faculty can have an enormous impact on students’ wellness and ability to learn. We offer the Classroom Wellness Online Toolkit, a menu of strategies and resources, to help faculty incorporate elements of wellbeing into their pedagogy.
Many Sacramento State faculty are already practicing these strategies and witnessing the positive effect on their students. To learn more, join the network of faculty across campus who are invested in the wellness of their students.
