Annual CSU Wellness and Wellbeing Expos for staff and students

Tuesday 13 Mar 2018

More than 2 500 Charles Sturt University (CSU) staff and students are expected to benefit from the annual round of health and wellness expos currently in full-swing across the University.

The CSU 2018 Wellness and Wellbeing Expos for staff and students are being staged at seven main CSU campuses during March.

Expo coordinators in the CSU Division of Human Resources, Ms Lisa Tuineau and Ms Melissa Lombe, said, “Charles Sturt University recognises and values the importance of staff and student wellness and wellbeing, and aims to adopt a holistic approach to the treatment of workplace health and safety.

“The University appreciates that problems of a personal nature can and do have adverse effects on work performance, work satisfaction, study, health, and feelings of wellbeing, and is therefore running Wellness and Wellbeing Expos on its major campuses.

“The Expos will give attendees the opportunity to obtain information on numerous health and wellbeing services available to them at the University and in our local communities. The University hopes that staff and students will not just become more aware of the services available and will encourage them to engage with these services and programs.

“Through happier, healthier and more satisfied staff and students the University hopes to foster a productive and resilient environment.”

Services at the Expos include hearing checks, free massages, and pre-winter flu vaccinations.

Staff and students will have the opportunity to:

- improve their understanding of what wellness and wellbeing means;

- improve their awareness of what impacts wellness/wellbeing;

- learn more about the types of programs and services that are available to them; and

- make better decisions around health behaviours leading to better general health and wellness.

The 2018 CSU Wellness and Wellbeing Expos will be held at CSU in:

Albury/ Wodonga on Tuesday 13 March

Wagga Wagga on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 March

Dubbo on Monday 19 March

Orange on Tuesday 20 March

Bathurst on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 March

Expos have already been held at CSU in Port Macquarie (Tuesday 6 March), and CSU in Goulburn (Thursday 8 March).

The health and wellbeing of staff and students at CSU has received a boost with sponsorship from the NSW Trustee and Guardian, iCare, Gallaghers, Employers Mutual, G&C Mutual Bank, UniSuper, and nlc.
