A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s):
Faculty Staff Assistance Program - Available to meet with all full and part-time employees for assessment, referral and in many instances, short-term counseling services at no cost. When referrals are made, attention is paid to the employee's ability to afford such services, the location of the provider and the provider's area of expertise. The program also helps employees weave their way through the maze of managed care and insurance providers, ensuring that the employee receives the best services available. In many cases when an employee cannot afford to seek help outside of the University, the FSAP will often provide the service on campus. The University Health Center offers services to faculty, staff and students including Primary Care; International Travel Clinic, Allergy, and Immunization Services; Women's Health; Pharmacy; Occupational Health; Massage and Acupuncture; Dental Services; Meditation; Tobacco Cessation; Nutrition; and Workers' Compensation & Fitness for Duty. Faculty/staff have free access to use the fitness and recreational facilities at the School of Public Health, the Reckord Armory and Cole Fieldhouse. They also have the option to purchase a full membership to Campus Recreation Services through payroll deduction. Students have access to a wide array of recreational facilities, including gyms, a swimming pool, and weight rooms through Campus Recreation Services. Membership to Campus Recreation Services is paid through student fees. The University of Maryland works from a broad definition of wellness that in addition to physical wellness, the concept of well-being also extends to spiritual, vocational, intellectual, social and emotional dimensions. In relation to this, faculty/staff resources are available from the Career Center, and the Memorial Chapel contains a Garden of Reflection and Remembrance, whose goal is to be a lush, open space for meditation.
