Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

EAP provides professional counseling, information, and referral services to faculty, staff and their families. The program offers confidential consultation on a wide variety of personal, family and/or work-related problems that may contribute to high levels of stress and interfere with health and work performance.

Legal and Financial Consultation Services

There are two ways to use EAP: 

  1. Access their website at https://www.magellanascend.com/. Here you'll find tips on everything from parenting, to weight loss, to depression. These services are free to you, as an employee, and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 
  2. Call EAP at 1-800-424-4831. As an employee,  you are eligible to receive up to 8 consultations per issue, per year. If the issue requires more than 8 consultations, EAP will refer you to the health plan and/or community for further assistance. If a referral is made to a private counselor or community agency, the individual is responsible through health insurance or personal resources for payment to the counselor or agency for all services rendered. Your dependents (spouses and children who qualify as a dependent status) may also use this benefit.

Coupon Savings are also available through EAP in your area.

Effective performance management

Effectively managing staff member performance, engagement and career growth involves much more than an annual performance review.
