by Goodman, Chris.

Abstract (Summary)
University of Wisconsin-Stout faculty and staff are provided with an internal employee assistance program as part of their benefits package facilitated by the University Counseling Center. This research project will determine the current awareness and utilization by the faculty and staff in regards to this program, while also discovering opportunitiesto increase awareness and utilization, by faculty and staff members. This will be accomplished through an e-mail survey sent to all faculty and staff at the University of Wisconsin-Stout through which the following topics will be determined and discussed: respondents level of awareness regarding their EAP program and its functions; determining perceptions in regards to what is important to the users of a benefit like this, along with respondents preferences and or feelings in respect to effective avenues of information gathering when educating users of this benefit. Respondents will also provide basic demographic information including gender, classification of employment, and length of employment. This information will provide a better idea of where their informational efforts are succeeding and are lacking. The end result of this study will provide a benchmark for the University Counseling Center to compare to both the past and the future to determine progress.
