To learn efficiently, students must be healthy. And to teach effectively, faculty must be healthy. If you’re sick with a cold or flu and need to stay home and rest, you can get medicine to manage your symptoms at a reduced priced. Thanks to the campus WellCat Health Center, faculty can get over-the-counter drugs (generic in some cases) for a fraction of the retail price. For example, you can purchase Nyquil for $2.17, Robitussin for $1.85, Advil for $1.85, or Multi-vitamins for $1.85. A complete list of over 100 medicines and supplements on the pharmacy medication list are available at the pharmacy window during normal business hours.
If you’re not sick but need a “mental wellness” day off, consider taking the one Personal Holiday that all faculty are entitled to each year (see CBA 33.3).
