Between students moving in and faculty and staff preparing for the new academic year, activity on campus has really picked up! Our colleagues in MHealthy have also been active in creating enjoyable and motivating methods to keep us moving, such as the free Active U Autumn program. Register by September 16 to join in the fun with your U-M colleagues. Staff of all fitness levels are welcome to join one of the more than 100 exercise and relaxation classes that will begin this fall. You can also sign up for their “Be Well in the Big House” event on September 20, where faculty and staff of all abilities are welcome to participate in on-field exercise and meditation sessions and enjoy off-the-field activities such as a farmers market and discussions with health experts. Register early so you don’t miss out!
Monday is Labor Day, a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers and their contributions to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. I consider it a great privilege to work alongside all my B&F colleagues at a university that is serving people and developing great leaders and citizens. On Labor Day, please take a moment to recognize the value of the work you and your colleagues do to support this incredible institution. What you do matters and makes a difference every day as together we work to Make Blue Go.
With much appreciation and gratitude,
P.S., Please post for staff who don’t have regular access to email
