Work at the WEC

WEC Staff have an enthusiastic interest and personal dedication to health and wellness, including making healthy, responsible lifestyle choices. They have equally outstanding teamwork and independent work skills: WEC Staff must be able to reliably complete tasks independently while also supporting and actively participating in a fast-paced collaborative environment of student staff members.
