NYU recognizes that the success of the University as a leading-edge academic institution is critically linked to the physical health and total well being of the faculty, employees, and their family members who support the endeavor. NYU's employee assistance program, administered in the U.S. by Carebridge Life Resources, provides services and support for the common – and uncommon – personal and family challenges of contemporary life.
