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

Students are able to take advantage of services available through the Counseling Center. The employee assistance program is committed to providing UAlbany employees with various opportunities to enhance their health and well-being. In addition to the Assessment and Referral Service, EAP sponsors an array of wellness programs designed to meet the needs and interests of the university community. Most of the programs are free of charge unless otherwise specified. Free lunchtime wellness programs occur on the Uptown,
Downtown, and East Campuses. EAP searches for presenters from the community who can provide valuable information and resources
that will enhance the participants' welll-being. Employees are invited to bring their "brown bag" lunches to these one hour events. EAP coordinates various programs to enhance one's physical health. Walking, yoga, and Tai Chi are just a few exercise and movement workshops or classes that are offered throughout the year.
