Steering Committee

The Healthy IU Steering Committee was formed in late 2013. Members of the Healthy IU Steering Committee provide diverse expertise to support and guide Healthy IU’s plan of work to improve employee wellbeing on all IU campuses. Programming plans and goals are prioritized by the  CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard and findings from the university’s Workplace Health and Wellness survey.
