Wellness Committee Charge

Charge: The Wellness Committee is intended to enhance the personal and professional productivity of LSU Libraries staff by promoting healthy lifestyle choices. Specifically, the Committee will:

  • Help identify and promote campus resources relating to wellness.
  • Query Libraries staff to discern and prioritize staff needs relating to their physical or mental health.
  • Create programming targeted to special issues of interest to LSU Libraries staff.
  • Advocate for workplace policies and practices that support improved health.
  • Coordinate the monitoring and evaluation/assessment of the wellness activities/programs offered to employees

The Libraries defines "wellness" to refer to a broad spectrum of both physical and mental health concerns. The Libraries Committee will be expected to defer to professionals in these areas, all the while respecting the privacy concerns of everyone involved. The committee will work in close coordination with the Library's HR director, and with department heads and other supervisors.

Examples of possible initiatives consistent with this charge:

  • Health promotion literature, seminars, education sessions such as lunch-n-learns, classes or lectures, etc.
  • Incentives, walking/running groups, exercise or fitness classes/groups, facilities (showers, locker rooms, on-site gyms, etc.) offered, bike racks or storage, gym memberships, food services and facilities (cafeterias, vending, preparation and storage).
  • Stress management strategies such as meditation, exercise, and good sleep habits.
  • Linkages with Related Programs: Examples: Employee assistance, occupational health and safety programs, health benefits or flexible spending accounts, flexible/telecommute schedules, or other programs
