Departmental Awards

The MUS Wellness Departmental Awards Program recognizes departments within the Montana University System that actively promote a healthy work environment for employees.

To earn a Departmental Wellness Award, a department must apply for the recognition and meet a certain number of criteria within three separate categories: Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Culture. The criteria are presented as a menu of choices, to allow departments flexibility in how they choose to promote wellness. Departments must also provide a brief written statement describing why
the department deserves recognition, and submit a photograph of a department
wellness initiative or event.

Award levels consist of Copper, Silver, and Gold, and are awarded on a fiscal year basis. Departments may apply any time, before May 15th for an award in the current fiscal year. Award recipients will receive a plaque for the department, recognition on the MUS Wellness website and Montana Moves and Meals Blog, and a special swag item for individuals in the department.
