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.

U Employees Conquer a Mountain of Debt

With the help of free financial counselors, over $1.6 million in personal debt has been paid off by University employees since 2014. The University offers free financial counseling to employees through LSS Financial Counseling, a Minnesota-based nonprofit organization. A counselor helps to create a debt management plan that consolidates payments so debt is paid off faster. Employees and their families can schedule up to six counseling sessions a year for free to talk about paying off debt, budgeting, paying off student loans, buying a home, and reviewing credit reports. To make an appointment, call 800-528-2926 or visit the financial counseling page to learn more about this benefit.

Diversity on Campus

The University is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming campus. Learn more about diversity at the U. See the University's equal opportunity statement from President Eric Kaler.
