A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):

The Student Health Center is a fully accredited outpatient clinic that provides primary medical care, health education, wellness promotion, and disease prevention. The facility is housed in the Health Center Building and is equipped with eight up-to-date examination rooms, a pharmacy, a clinical laboratory, a minor surgery room, and an infirmary (short stay) room. The mission of the Student Health Center is to provide eligible students quality, evidence based healthcare, preventative services, health education, and advocacy for optimal health within the university community. The Health Center offers programming to promote healthy lifestyles, foster edifying relationships, and encourage self-development, as well as evaluate, recognize, and support our students in their pursuit of higher education by caring for their physical and mental health.

Psychological Counseling Services provides professional, ethical, and confidential psychological counseling to students. Voluntary, non-coerced participation is emphasized. Additionally, Psychological Counseling Services offers workshops, outreach, and consultation. Services are offered using a proactive, developmental and systemically-oriented model. Psychological Counseling Services supports a multicultural, collaborative, and diverse campus community. Psychological Counselors assist students to develop cognitive and emotional integration, relationship skills, and personal resilience.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is administered by LifeMatters, a University-paid benefit for eligible employees and dependents. All employees, their dependents (including dependent children not residing with the parent) and other individuals living in the employee’s home are eligible for services and may contact LifeMatters directly. Referral services are available on a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week basis. Each eligible person is entitled to up to 5 sessions per incident. Face-to-Face Clinical Counseling is available for issues such as relationship concerns and family problems, stress/emotional distress, workplace problems, and alcohol/chemical dependency.
