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.
