A Glimpse of our Programs

Expansion of the Texas State Employee Wellness Program

A 15-week Pilot Program (January 12 – May 3, 2015)


Texas State is committed to helping Texas State employees make their health a priority. Between January 12th and May 3rd, all employees will have free and unlimited access to:

  • Lunch ‘n Learn sessions covering a variety of wellness topics,
  • open swim at the Aqua Sports Center,
  • open racquetball at Jowers Center, wellness checks, and
  • group fitness classes held at a variety of locations throughout campus (i.e., Jowers, JCK, Alkek, Aqua Sports, and Facilities). 


To be eligible to participate in this free program, employees must register on-line, complete a Personal Health Appraisal, and sign a General Release and Waiver form. Registration will open December 1st and remain open throughout the duration of the pilot program. 

Expanded Package

Using a lotto-type system, 100 pilot participants will be chosen to receive an Expanded Package, which in addition to the activities described above, will include pre- and post-assessments (body size and composition, aerobic and muscular fitness assessment), hands on cooking classes, membership to the Student Recreation Center, and behavior change coaching. With behavior change coaching, tailored information will be provided to participants to enhance motivation and support for successful behavior change.  Participants will complete surveys and meet in small groups or one-on-one (1 to 4 meetings over the course of the 4 months) with a health coach to explore and develop a plan to ensure successful behavior change.

To be eligible to enter into the lottery for 100 Expanded Packages, employees must

  1. register and submit their registration packet (i.e., completed Personal Health Appraisal and General Release and Waiver form) by midnight on December 15, 2014,
  2. be considered moderate or high risk for cardiovascular disease based on their responses to the medical health appraisal, and
  3. check “Yes, I would like for my name to be entered into the drawing to receive one of the 100 Expanded Packages,” on the first page of the registration packet.

Education: Twelve, 1-hour Lunch ‘n Learn sessions will be offered throughout the 15-week program and cover such wellness topics as Fiction and Facts about Physical Activity, Tracking the Body: Tools and Apps You can Use, Restorative Sleep, and Healthy Eating.
