As a part of the Thrive Initiative, the Office of Wellbeing was excited to launch its “Thrive Dimension Champions” Awards for faculty and staff this spring semester.
Each day, many members of our Wake Forest community demonstrate their commitment to individual and community wellbeing across the eight dimensions: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual.
“The Office of Wellbeing has the privilege of leading Thrive, Wake Forest University’s comprehensive approach to wellbeing, but the foundation for this initiative is deeply rooted in the scholarship and actions of faculty and staff across this campus. They are the living examples of meaningful, purposeful lives that make the Wake Forest experience,” says Malika Roman Isler, director of wellbeing.
Nominations will open again for the 2015-2016 academic year, so there is still an opportunity to nominate a friend or colleague that should be recognized for their role in making Wake Forest exceptional.
Along with the recognition for their efforts around campus, Wellbeing Dimension Champions also receive a THRIVE Swag Bag containing Wake Forest and Thrive paraphernalia, a gift card to a local restaurant and a framed Dimension Champion certificate.
Please congratulate Wake Forest’s first eight Dimension Champions. Read more about each honoree on the Thrive blog.
