Life/Work Balance

Our ability to thrive and succeed is linked to our overall well-being — a life of purpose, resilience, and engagement. The benefits permeate every aspect of our lives.

We're Committed To You

Mason strives to create an environment conducive to well-being by providing opportunities for all members to align their core values, strengths, meaning, and purpose in life. The well-being of our faculty is critical to our success as an institution and we have identified this as a goal in our 10-year strategic plan:

“Becoming a model well-being university is about using an integrated approach so that we may thrive together."

A major part of that goal is to ensure our faculty can sustain and integrate a healthy life/work balance. Mason has a variety of support and resource strategies to make that happen.
