Thrive Faculty/Staff Wellness Program

Thrive Wellness Program logo

Pepperdine offers the Thrive Wellness Program as an additional benefit and educational opportunity to faculty and staff. The Thrive Wellness Program believes wellness is a multidimensional concept that includes providing health education to promote the six dimensions of health. These are defined as a balance of physical, social, spiritual, psychological, occupational, and intellectual health.

Promoting wellness involves proactively assisting others in increasing their awareness of personal and community health, helping to change attitudes so changes in behavior are possible, and searching for alternatives to improve health and overall well being. A fuller measure of health and a better quality of life is within our personal grasp – the Thrive Wellness Program is dedicated to promoting a healthy family at Pepperdine.

Pepperdine offers the following programs and resources for all interested employees:
