Geneseo's EAP Coordinator(s)

We currently need EAP coordinators!

EAP coordinators answer messages left on our SUNY Geneseo EAP hotline and return calls within 24 hours, except for weekends and holidays. The EAP coordinator assesses employee challenges and connects the employee with helpful resources in our community. EAP coordinators do not provide counseling but rather provide support for employees in crisis by providing a bridge to professional help and guidance by professionals in our community.

If you are interested in taking on this volunteer role, please contact EAP co-chairs, Laura Evans at evansl@geneseo.edu and/or Noreen Mazurowski at mazurowski@geneseo.edu.

What is EAP?

The NYS Employee Assistance Program is a peer assistance program jointly sponsored by labor and management. NYS EAP provides confidential information, assessment, and referral services to NYS employees, their family members, and retirees. It also provides orientations and training for all employees, managers, supervisors, and union representatives on benefits and use of EAP.

What Does the EAP Coordinator Do? 

Your Coordinator will assist you in determining the nature of your problem and linking you with an appropriate referral.
