About wellness at Klamath Community College

Why Wellness?

For our staff and faculty.
Promoting well-being is the right thing to do.

For our students.
If we are healthy it helps us to provide quality service and model a healthier lifestyle to our students.

For our college.
Research says improving workplace health improves productivity, reduces absenteeism, and reduces turnover.
