Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
The EAP strives to embrace diversity and cultivate inclusion in all aspects of its operations to best serve all our clients. If there is anything we can do to better serve your needs, please let us know.

At the Employee Assistance Program we want to acknowledge the pain and suffering following the homicides of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and locally, the impact to our community arising out of the investigation into the death of Michael Ramos. We grieve the devastating impact of current, historical, and systemic racism and violence against people of color, and are aware that many faculty and staff are being impacted in complex and traumatic ways. The EAP staff  is committed to the University’s values of inclusion and diversity and to continuing to do our own work to stand up against racism. We are here to continue to listen, learn and support employees trying to navigate these painful and frightening experiences.
