Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTL) that suffer from funding and staffing issues must rely on outside resources to enhance their effectiveness. Even if funds and staff are adequate, most CTL can improve their reach and effectiveness by the partnerships they establish across their campuses. In this article, we describe a faculty wellness workshop series that illustrates the strategic leveraging we have been able to accomplish on our campus. The series included free-standing faculty workshops devoted to stress management (partnering with Counseling Services), work-life balance and workplace civility (with members of our faculty learning communities), voice coaching (with our Communication Studies Department), healthy eating and physical activity (with our campus's Director of Health Promotion), and health coaching (with our Campus Recreation department). Members of each of the partnering entities presented workshops in collaboration with our center staff. We summarize the individual workshops, report data from the faculty participants' evaluations of the program, and provide lessons learned for other institutions that might be interested in creating a similar program.
