Open Enrollment

Benefits Open Enrollment


Weber State University will be holding annual medical and dental open enrollment for salaried faculty and staff from April 10 through May 19. During this time, you can make changes for the 2023-24 school year to your existing health, dental, or vision plans. This annual enrollment period will be the only opportunity to make changes to your coverage until April 2024 (unless you have a qualifying event). 

Please be mindful of the following:

  • All benefit changes are effective July 1, 2023.

  • Online open enrollment for medical, dental, vision and flex spending will be completed through the eWeber Portal website using the Employee Enrollment app. You must have an eWeber login and password to complete online open enrollment.

  • If you do not want to make changes to your benefits, you do not need to go to the Employee Enrollment app, and your benefits will remain the same. HOWEVER, Flex Spending accounts do require re-enrollment each year. This is done through the app.

  • Your last day to make changes to your benefits is May 19.

Personal Training

Request through email:

Personal Training is back! Employee Wellness will provide on-site personal training to help with your fitness needs.

Training sessions will be offered in your choice of 4 or 6-week programs. You will meet with our trainer either once or twice a week.

As we are in the process of redesigning our Personal Training program, our trainer will be experimenting with different formats and will attempt to accommodate all participant needs. You are encouraged to provide constructive feedback during and at the end of your sessions that will allow this program to flourish.

Wellness Coaching

Request through email:

Wellness coaching can help those seeking ways to improve their overall well-being. A wellness coach provides support, guidance, and accountability as you make changes to your lifestyle.

During your session, your wellness coach will help you to identify your strengths, set realistic goals, develop an action plan, and track your progress. While the coach is here to facilitate conversation, it is ultimately the client who is responsible for taking action and making changes. Coaching can be beneficial for those who are overwhelmed or feel stuck when it comes to developing healthy behaviors.


Wellness In 30


Exercise in a Pinch

Many of us are discouraged from exercising when we can't find an open 60-minute time slot on our daily calendar. Did you know that you can still reap the benefits of a full-hour workout in a much shorter timeframe? This month’s Wellness In 30 will explore ways to exercise when time is not on your side. This Wellness In 30 is provided by Raeanna Johnson.
