Look to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for Help When You Need It

We’ve all experienced a personal or work concern at some point in our work life, and we know that how we handle the situation affects how we function at work and home. You don’t have to deal with the problem alone. The University has contracted with Sand Creek to provide free, confidential assessment, short-term counseling, referral, and follow-up for you and your eligible family members.

EAP is available to all benefits-eligible employees on all system campuses. Contact Sand Creek by phone or online to start the process.
