Empower and appreciate

Feeling empowered and appreciated by colleagues and the organization is important to the university. Empower and appreciate combine to make up a priority of the UM System Culture of Health.

Learn about easy action steps to advance yourself both professionally and personally. Help your coworkers do the same, and let them know you value their contributions to the workplace.

Learn about activities and resources that will help you improve diversity, advocate for inclusion, and cultivate awareness and openness in support of greater equity.

Start giving back to the community through one of many opportunities available in your city, on your campus, or in the state of Missouri.

Building your financial wellness can include budgeting, saving, investing, or setting financial goals for your future.
