HRD Awarded CIGNA Foundation Grant
The Office of Human Resources Development (HRD) is delighted to announce that we have applied for, and were 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.
The University’s primary goal regarding wellness is to create a culture of wellness that promotes and encourages a healthy workforce. We want to provide every opportunity to help our faculty and staff (and their families) to adopt healthy behaviors to maintain and/or improve their overall health and well-being. As the mission of the University of Hartford states, we are a private university with a public purpose. The CIGNA Foundation grant focuses on four aspects/quadrants of wellness including Nutrition, General Fitness, Smoking Cessation and Stress Management. During calendar year 2012, HRD will use 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 the University community to take an active role in their (private) overall wellness as well as the (public) wellness opportunities around them. Please join us in taking advantage of all that this grant will allow us to offer you!
