Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The university provides a confidential, independent Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to all employees and members of their immediate household (even those students away at school). The services offer assistance with counseling, work-life issues, and resource identification. The EAP offers up to six free sessions with a master’s-level counselor with whom employees can talk about their emotional, stress-related, relationship or family concerns in person or over the phone.
