Employee Assistance Program Committee

SUNY Cortland's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Committee exists to improve the quality of work life for employees at SUNY Cortland. The committee works with the coordinator(s) to ensure that employees have effective EAP services available to them. The committee functions in a promotional and supervisory capacity; it sponsors programs and trainings for the campus and offers ongoing support to the coordinator(s). Committee members are not involved in any activities requiring direct contact with employees looking for assistance. In order to ensure confidentiality, committee members are not provided with individual names or details about employees who are using the program.
