Healthy Penguin Nation

Clark College encourages all community members to "be healthy, happy penguins!"

We strive to engage, educate and empower our community in support of the state of Washington's initiative to promote healthy lifestyle practices in the workplace. 

We do this by adhering to a holistic model of wellness that focuses on the whole employee - offering a wide range of resources that help contribute to optimal living in the six interactive dimensions that influence overall well-being.

Six Dimensions of Wellness

Good news! Clark College was one of two Washington State higher education institutions awarded the Zo8 award, which recognizes our commitment and efforts to build and grow a healthier community!
