Recurring (Monthly) Programs

Research shows that despite being more connected via technology, we are finding ourselves disconnected from others with fewer opportunities to interact face to face. The Staff Success Center and Be Well UC hope to help you develop personally and professionally as you learn, share and connect with colleagues over relevant and thought provoking content from articles, TED talks and books. Topics and themes may change – but the conversation will always be engaging, dynamic and foster community.

To get started:

  • We will continue to update this page to connect you with upcoming topics and resources. Here's an introductory handout explaining the new program.
  • Register for our introductory sessions in 2018, which will be drop in style, on the Be Well UC tile in HR EDGE: http://bit.ly/HR-EDGE.
  • Beginning in 2019, register for sessions through SuccessFactors Learning, where you’ll learn more about the resources to review prior to attendance.

Questions? The Be Well UC and Staff Success Center teams are happy to help answer your questions. Please send them directly to wellness@uc.edu or hrlearning@uc.edu.
