Wellness

Pace University values the physical and emotional health and well-being of our faculty and staff and strives to promote a healthy work environment. We know that being healthy and taking care of yourself in the best way possible makes your work life more productive and satisfying.

Our wellness programs are designed to encourage all faculty, staff and students to live healthier lifestyles and create a culture of health throughout the campus.

Many of our wellness programs either have no cost or actually reward you in cash for participating!

They include:

  • The Wellness Walking Club - Weather permitting, Human Resources will lead 30-45 minute walks on the Pleasantville and New York campuses each week.  Please join us when you can.
