Cornell Wellness Vision

All employees will be supported by Cornell Wellness in a way that further enhances their wellness, engagement, and success in their lives.


The Individual: The Cornell University Wellness Program respects and supports the unique needs of each individual while providing opportunities for joy, balance, and wellness. Embracing similarities and differences in a common endeavor enables individuals to share their strengths, wisdom, and experience. Recognizing and respecting the individuality of goals and abilities creates an environment that promotes personal success. Whether participants are engaging in individual wellness pursuits or seeking the social camaraderie of a class environment, Cornell Wellness is ready, willing, and able to facilitate a successful experience.

The University: The Cornell University Wellness Program believes in the University‚Äôs commitment to a culture of belonging in which individuals can achieve their fullest potential. Cornell Wellness exists to support the wellness of all faculty, staff, retirees, spouses, and partners. We acknowledge that individuals, each with their own unique experiences, are asked to participate in a diverse and open environment. To that end, Cornell Wellness encourages participation by all through creating welcoming environments and continuously working with people to provide programming and spaces that meet the needs of all of the individuals we serve.
