Welcome to USC Marshall’s Wellness Hub—a central location to find resources, articles, research and other information related to maintaining mental and physical well-being for the Marshall Community.
The Marshall School believes wellness plays an important role in a premier business education. Our own faculty's research has shown time and again that ignoring self-care in the pursuit of excellence will eventually lead to burn-out. We hope these resources will help you avoid that result, and thrive in your pursuits instead.
We look forward to helping you maintain wellness throughout the year by adding new features and research to this page. Please check back for regular updates.

Gratitude, mindfulness, and empowerment. Increasingly, academic research is proving that employee well-being benefits company culture, employee retention, and productivity, and the call to integrate these principles into everyday operations is entering the mainstream. USC Marshall researchers Eric Anicich, Jennifer Deal, and Glenn Fox discuss their latest research into this topic.
USC Marshall faculty are on the front lines of research into how wellness plays into business outcomes. Here is a sampling of recent published research.
