Many people ask us what makes NKU’s health and wellness efforts so successful and the answer is really quite simple…


University Wellness listens to YOU, we empower YOU, and we celebrate YOU.

That’s why we don’t ‘do’ health and wellness – we strive each and every day, with the fullest of passion and energy, to nourish and cultivate what it really means to ‘be’ a healthy campus.

Health is contagious at NKU. Building from values, relationships and behaviors, we understand that YOU want and need more than pedometers and carrot sticks. Embracing your personal vision of health and igniting your energy towards actively shaping our evolving health culture on campus, is all part of how we hold hands together to achieve a common goal of fulfilling a sense of well-being that extends beyond the physical.

As the saying goes, ‘Go big or go home’, we invite you to join us, as we continue to deliver breakthrough results and experiences that only add to the vibrancy of our campus. Tell us your stories, stretch out your hands of support – everyday in every way, together we will continue to make a difference.

Our mission is to build and support an overall campus culture that is not only conducive for promoting and encouraging healthy lifestyle behaviors, but also one that fosters employee and student engagement. We believe that if an employee or student feels good about him/herself and feels good about what they are doing at NKU, they will in turn be happier, healthier, safer, and more productive. We encourage everyone to take an active role in caring for themselves, their colleagues, and their environment. Valuing “whole” people, valuing health. Welcome to the essence of a healthy campus.
