HRD Awarded CIGNA Foundation Grant for Second Consecutive Year
In December 2011, the Office of Human Resources Development (HRD) applied for, and was awarded, a $20,000 grant from the CIGNA Foundation, a foundation committed to enhancing the health of individuals and families and the well-being of the communities in which they live and work.
We are pleased to announce that we applied for, and have been awarded, the CIGNA Foundation grant again this year. This grant, in the amount of $25,000, supports HRD efforts towards the University's commitment to creating a culture of wellness on our campus and beyond.
As the mission of the University of Hartford states, we are a private university with a public purpose. The ultimate goal of our wellness efforts is to allow each individual the opportunity to engage in wellness activities and ultimately make healthier decisions.
HRD plans to continue to focus on the four quadrants of wellness (Nutrition, General Fitness, Smoking Cessation and Stress Management) by using the funds from this generous grant to subsidize costs associated with these quadrants, including providing programs, speakers, tools (such as pedometers) and resources to further engage members of the University community to take an active role in adopting healthy behaviors to maintain and/or improve their overall health and well-being.
Please join us in taking advantage of all that this grant will allow us to offer you!
