Learning and Development Opportunities

Work/Life Balance/Future Planning

Most of us manage our lives successfully. There are times, however, when personal problems interfere with relationships, job performance, and physical health. Everyone can benefit from help when these difficulties arise. The Department of Human Resources offers FREE and confidential counseling and referral services via the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), administered by LifeMatters by Empathia. 


Continuing Education

Pursuing your personal and professional development goals may be easier than you think. Please contact the Department of Human Resources or vision the Tuition Waiver page for more information.
