Health Engagement Program

Health Engagement Program / Incentive Based Health Screening

The Health Engagement Program grew out of the recommendations of a committee formed by IU President Michael McRobbie in 2009.

Recognizing that employees perform their best when they are healthy and that optimal employee performance is necessary for Indiana University to be the preeminent institution of higher education in Indiana, Healthy IU exists to empower, educate, and provide necessary tools for healthy living for the university-wide campus community with specific focus on benefit-eligible employees and their covered family members.

Screenings with informational feedback will be provided to IU regional campuses at least twice annually. You will be invited by e-mail to participate in the voluntary program. This process allows health services the time to provide both the screening and health information feedback you need to make wise lifestyle choices.

Take stock of your health and well-being by taking advantage of a FREE on-site health screening. The confidential, voluntary health screening includes: blood pressure; glucose, total cholesterol; HDL; LDL; triglycerides;(via finger stick) height; weight and total body mass Index; free self-care book and a 1:1 feedback session with a health professional. Full time faculty and staff are eligible as well as their spouses or same sex domestic partners covered under the IU medical plan for the free screening and a $100 incentive (before tax).

PLEASE FAST, DO NOT EAT ANYTHING FOR 10 to 12 HOURS before your scheduled appointment. You may have water as much as desired and any prescription medications.

The confidential, one-on-one screening will take place at Indiana University Southeast, in University Center South, #245 on:

Monday, January 28, 2013
Friday, February 1, 2013
Thursday, February 14, 2013

To schedule your personal appointment call: 812-855-7859 or e-mail

IU Voluntary Benefits

IU Voluntary Benefits

Indiana University is committed to offering a benefits program that provides value while containing costs. IU full-time and part-time (appointed at 50% FTE or greater) employees, Graduate Assistants (37.5% FTE or greater), and Retirees now have access to a greater variety of plans in this offering of the IU Voluntary Benefits Program.

This program is designed around products that can help save money and protect assets. Enrollees pay 100 percent of the cost for plans in the program; however, the group rates are more affordable than what one would pay as an individual, and premiums for most plans can be paid for by a single, after-tax payroll deduction.

Enrollment can be done online. To find out details about the plans, premium cost information, or to enroll, visit:

> IU Voluntary Benefits Web site

For questions regarding voluntary benefits, please contact Marsh Voluntary Benefits customer service, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time, at 1-866-795-6272.

P.A.T. Awards

At IU Southeast, we want to acknowledge a job well done. Everyone appreciates it when their hard work garners notice, and a new recognition program for our employees does just that. The Point After Touchdown, or P.A.T.Award, is given to an employee at IUS who has performed at an outstanding level. It is an award reserved for someone who truly has made a difference.

Employees are primarily nominated for the P.A.T. by their supervisor. Any IUS employee may submit a nomination, subject to the support of the nominee’s supervisor. The P.A.T. Award program provides non-monetary recognition for valuable IUS employees.

Outstanding Performance Criteria: Outstanding performance is defined as "above and beyond" commitment to customer service or efficiency. The outstanding performance can have a short-term or long-term effect on departmental or university objectives. The P.A.T. Award should be reserved for someone who truly has made a difference.

Ask Yourself: Was this employee's service above and beyond all expectations? Has this employee made a difference in my office? Does this employee's positive attitude have an impact on other employees? How did this employee's effort contribute to a departmental objective and/or initiative in the IUS Strategic Plan?

Vice Chancellors submit approved forms to Human Resources to schedule an award ceremony. The ceremony consists of the Chancellor and reporting Vice Chancellor visiting the recipient to present the award and recognize the employee for their valued efforts. Human Resources will schedule the ceremony.
