The Mission of the Employee Wellness Council is to increase wellness opportunities among Clayton State
University employees through education
and awareness and to foster positive attitudes toward healthier
lifestyles that improve one’s quality of life.
The Employee Wellness Council is comprised of employees from all across the campus
representing every major division within the university. Our hope is
to serve the campus as ambassadors for wellness. In short, we aspire
to encourage all employees to make their personal health and
wellness a top priority. For more information, please contact Lisa Williamson, Assistant Director of Recreation & Wellness (Fitness & Wellness) at x4975 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
