The Vision, Mission, and Objectives of MUS Wellness constitute our core values. This is who we are! We want to accomplish our Mission and realize our Vision through the execution of our objectives.


Montana University System plan members engaged in the ownership and betterment of their health and well-being in order to maximize quality of life. 


The Mission of the Montana University System Wellness Program is to help our plan members stay healthy, by providing and incentivizing preventive health screenings, healthy lifestyle education and support, and disease prevention/management programs.

What is the Wellness Champion Team?
The Wellness Champion Team is comprised of Montana University System (MUS) faculty and staff who support the mission of the Montana University System Wellness program.  Wellness Champions help create a wellness culture at work by increasing the visibility of the MUS Wellness program and facilitating the opportunity for all employees to take advantage of our health/wellness benefits.  The MUS Wellness Program has undergone recent changes and employees can expect to see many new, fun, state-wide Wellness programs in the coming months.  It’s an exciting time to be involved with the MUS Wellness Program and we will be counting on our Wellness Champion Team to help make these new programs a success!
