Your well-being is crucial for your success at Radford University. We would like to provide a few resources to assist you in being a balanced employee here.
Changes in your lifestyle can have a big impact on your health. The CommonHealth program strives to make a difference in the health of employees and the workplace by integrating health into the work culture. More than 40 different health promotion services are offered to state agencies, including fitness and stress management, personal health and safety, and weight control and nutrition.
WW’s Workshops have helped millions of members build healthy habits for real life, and employees now have access to Private Virtual Workshops through the Commonwealth of Virginia and WW partnership. Weekly guidance from a WW Coach in a virtual group setting that will help move you closer to your weight-loss and wellness goals. The Workshops are fun, supportive—and did I mention private? Right on your phone (or computer). These private Workshops are virtual, so you can get live stay-on-track support from a WW Coach in the palm of your hand. It couldn’t be easier! Current WW Members can view the Workshop schedule by joining the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Connect Group. Just click here to join. IMPORTANT: You must open this link on a mobile device to be directed to the Connect group. Not a Member? Learn more about our partnership with WW at WW.com/us/CommonHealth
Several walking routes have been mapped out around the Radford University campus with the distance and approximate time taken to walk the loop. Not only is this a great way to get exercise, but it is also a great way to explore and become familiar with Radford University's beautiful main campus!

Employees who are participating in one of the health plans offered by the state can take advantage of an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). These services offer counseling sessions for employees and their dependents with up to four sessions at no charge. EAP counselors are available to assist employees with issues related to alcohol, drugs, family, health, legal, financial, housing, mental health, child care, elder care, grief, spousal/child/parent abuse, workplace, career planning, and retirement. Visit our Employee Assistance Program page for EAP information and resources.
The Department of Health and Human Performance (HHP) offers daily programs for faculty and staff in the Peter's Hall Fitness Lab. Please visit their website for information on programs and other events for faculty and staff fitness.
Radford University's Libraries and its staff of helpful librarians support student and faculty research, scholarship, and the free and open exploration of ideas. The library has a large collection of books, DVDs, journals, archival materials, and multimedia equipment for academic and recreational use. Thousands of electronic resources can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
Faculty and Staff have access to the vast resources available at the McConnell and RUC Libraries. All you need is your Radford University OneCard which also serves as your library card.
In addition members of an employee's family can access Radford University Libraries if they are a Virginia resident. In order to receive a public patron card, they will need to present a valid Virginia driver's license or a military ID or passport along with verification of address. Radford University Libraries require the signature and identification (presented in-person) of a parent or guardian for patrons under the age of 18 who request public patron cards.
