Rice University is excited to launch a new comprehensive wellness program and partnership with HealthFitness. Our vision for the program is that Rice University models a visibly healthy culture that promotes and facilitates well-being as an integral part of the institution's identity and value proposition.
Rice's mission is to foster a healthy and supportive environment and provide access to convenient and high quality programs and services, aimed to enable faculty, staff, and their families to pursue physical, social and emotional well-being to inspire people to participate.
