A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is sponsored by Sun Life as part of the University benefits offered to staff and faculty. This program provides a wide range of services to help in areas such as personal problems, planning for life events, and managing daily life. Programs include counseling services (managing relationships, stress, and grief), resources for work-life needs (finding child care, purchasing a car, and home repair), legal information resources (debt, divorce, and real estate), and financial information (tax and debt issues).
The FIT Rx program is offered through the Department of Health Sciences. Health Science majors provide individualized exercise-training sessions for faculty, staff, and spouses at no cost. Participants receive personalized exercise training and are offered assessments of fitness, body composition, and dietary intake to gauge progress.
Students also have accesses to a network of medical professionals. Furman’s health services offer routine and emergency medical care, a women’s clinic, and a sports medicine/physical therapy center. There is also a counseling center, which provides treatment for a variety of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, stress management, and academic pressure.
