University Human Resource Services

Employee Assistance Program

When an employee's life problems are not addressed, the difficulty can grow into major issues, potentially disrupting his or her ability to function at work, at home and in his or her personal relationships.

The employee may feel the situations or conditions are beyond his or her control and may hesitate to reach out if he or she doesn't know how or where to turn. The university's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers the confidential support and direction employees need. Callers will reach a caring, compassionate professional ready to help start the employee on the path to resolving his or her life concerns and return to full productivity in the workplace.

University Human Resource Services works closely with the professionals at the Counseling Center to ensure that each client receives prompt, confidential, and courteous attention. These trained professionals will assess the employee's needs and will help him or her decide the services that would be most helpful and appropriate. Depending on the need, sessions may be brief, solution-focused counseling or, if appropriate, the employee may be referred to a community resource or to more intensive treatments for more serious or chronic issues.
