Faculty & Staff Wellness Fair

 

The KU Faculty & Staff 2020 Wellness Fair is cancelled in respect for the University’s decision to cancel events exceeding 50 participants.  This event has historically drawn more than 250 faculty and staff and last year more than 330, plus vendors and volunteers!  By canceling the event, we are doing our part to maintain social distancing. 

 

Cancelled: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm 

KU Memorial Union, Ballroom 

Work Well, Play Well, Be Well.

The goal of the Faculty and Staff Wellness Committee is to help facilitate healthy lifestyle opportunities for our faculty and staff. Over 50 different businesses and organizations from campus and the local community will attend to promote wellness opportunities for you as an employee of the University of Kansas.
