Abstract Studies confirm the benefits of health and wellness programs in the workplace. However, limited knowledge is known about the impact of health programs in the universities and colleges for faculty and staff. This descriptive-evaluative study assesses and evaluates the health programs provided by the clinic of Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) designed for its employees with the use of Daniel Stufflebeam's CIPP (Context, Input, Process and Product) model as an evaluation tool. CIPP Evaluation Model focused more on the information gathering for easier decision making. This information can be a guide to enhance a program whether in the planning, arranging, implementation and production stage. This study also would like to determine whether the goals and objectives of the health programs are being met. Moreover, the study attempts to provide decision makers the needed data for the improvement of the health programs to address the urgent needs of the faculty and staff of the university. A mixed methodology is used for data collection making use of both qualitative and quantitative research collection. Personal interview with the clinic personnel; and the workplace health needs and interest questionnaire given to the faculty and staff were utilized. A total of 150 employees answered the given questionnaire. Results revealed that to exercise more is the top one activity employees chose to do to maintain or improve their health. The top five activities that the respondents consider participating into were oral-dental health, walking/running program, regular wellness education presentation, aerobic exercises and tied at top five (5) were weight management and coping with stress. With the use of context, input, process and input evaluation, it was found out that there is a need to intensify the programs implemented that would not limit to screening and assessment only but active programs that will help address the need for physical activity and nutrition. Therefore, decisions have to be made to facilitate improvements in the conduct of the program in every aspect of implementations to produce better and more meaningful outcomes for the faculty and staff.
