Wellness Resources for American University Faculty & Staff

Wellness is a process by which we become empowered to make choices that positively affect our health and well being. Wellness is a lifestyle about finding balance and defining what wellness looks like for you as an individual. 

American University offers a variety of wellness programs, benefits, and campus conveniences to support and strengthen faculty and staff in their professions, health and home life. From personal financial planning to physical fitness to emotional well being, the programs will help you pursue the various dimensions of wellness.
