Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The University of Wyoming offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that provides benefited employees and their household members with professional counseling, as well as legal and financial assistance.

UW partners with MINES and Associates of Littleton, Colorado, to provide services at no cost to UW employees.

Participation in the EAP is voluntary and strictly confidential. Employees can choose to meet face to face or access professional assistance online or by telephone, 24/7.

  • Financial -- Each employee and household member can receive a 30-minute office or telephone financial consultation on topics including credit counseling, debt and budgeting assistance, tax planning, retirement and college planning services and other services. USERNAME: uofwy, PASSWORD: employee
