You are important to us.

At Oklahoma State University, we are fortunate that the health and well-being of employees is a high priority from the President of the University on down.  Such support is evidenced by the University-paid fitness memberships in place since August, 2011; whereby, employees have access to the Colvin Recreation Center and Seretean Wellness Center at no out-of-pocket expense.


The mission of the Employee Wellness (EW) Program is to improve the health and well-being of OSU’s Faculty and Staff – thereby improving the culture of wellness on our campus.  EW coordinates a wide range of programs that are offered to OSU employees, including many at no charge and others for a reasonable fee.
