Work Life Balance in HHS


group at table

History of Office

In the Spring of 2015, Dean Hooper asked HHS to form an ad hoc committee on Work Life Balance. This decision arose from conversations with individual faculty and staff regarding the difficulties of navigating parenthood and work responsibilities.

Purpose

The intent of the committee is to provide information and peer support to faculty and staff . To date, the greatest interest has been among those who are trying to find a balance between work and parenthood.

We recognize, however, that other issues, such as elder care, or simply balancing work and life are also important. Thus, we provide resources related to these issues, and welcome additional committee members, with this particular interest, to take a leading role.
