To celebrate the launch of Healthy Workplace Month, staff, faculty and students are invited to join the Campus Mile and walk, run or roll one mile around our beautiful campus. This event will take place on Oct. 2 and registration is required.

This is a great opportunity to engage in physical activity, connect with your colleagues, and to take a break while enjoying the sights and sounds around you. To add to the fun, Parking Services has generously donated an annual Red parking pass that one lucky participant will win.
