Journal of Innovation in Polytechnic Education (JIPE) is pleased to announce the publication of “Designing and Implementing Health and Wellness Programs: Positioning Health and Wellness at the Forefront of an Polytechnic Institution” by Dr. Cory Ross, Dr. Gannady Raskin and Isabelle Callahan-Nasser.

Abstract:

The past 20 years has seen a renaissance of activity with respect to workplace wellness. The concept of providing a health and wellness program for employees has grown to include employee assistance aid. Within the polytechnic community, the health and wellness programs have expanded to the student body as well. If you consider the fact that a polytechnic has a population of some small cities, then the case for support of providing services is well founded. Due to the mix of international and domestic student populations, the wellness programming has taken on a new mosaic of services. The attention to cultural sensitivities and competencies needs to be addressed and incorporated when contemplating any services and programming to be delivered to the polytechnic community. Most recently, with the increase of mental health issues amongst staff and students, it is time to implement a strong interdisciplinary approach to wellness and mental health.
