Steering Committee

The Healthy IU Steering Committee was formed in late 2013 by former Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, and Treasurer MaryFrances McCourt. Members of the Healthy IU Steering Committee create initiatives aimed at continuing to improve employee health on all IU campuses. Programming plans and goals are prioritized by IU’s CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard and findings from the university’s Workplace Health and Wellness survey.
