Wellness at Marshall

We've compiled a list of links, stories, resources and listicles to help you make the most of your Wellness Days. 

April 30, 2021

Wellness Days web header

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.
