Employee Benefits & Work/Life

Ithaca College is committed to offering comprehensive benefits, programs, and services to meet the diverse needs of our employees and their families. All of our benefits and work/life programs are designed to help you get the most out of work and life by supporting health & wellbeing (health insurance, EAP), family life (Work/Life, EAP), education (tuition programs), and financial protection (retirement, disability, paid time away). We encourage all faculty and staff members to take advantage of these resources.

Individual Choice (Benefits)

The Individual Choice Program includes benefits such as medical and dental insurance, life insurance, accident insurance, and long-term disability coverage.

Work/Life: It's About You!

Work/Life at Ithaca College believes "It's About You" and has implemented programs and policies such as Flexible Work Arrangements, the Mind, Body, Me wellness program, and more.


Ithaca College retirement programs help faculty and staff build financial security by offering plans such as a 403(b) and the Emeriti Program.

Time Off Programs

Ithaca College offers a variety of options for time away from duties, including numerous Leaves of Absences.


All employees need the right tools and work environment to effectively perform their jobs, therefore, individuals with disabilities may request a workplace adjustment (or accommodation) to be able to perform their job.

Educational Benefits

The educational benefit program consists of three types of benefits for employees attending IC and eligible dependents attending either IC or another college or university.

IC Perks!

Additional benefits, such as Long-Term Care, on-campus resources, employee discounts, free parking, and more, are also offered to employees of the College.
