Cornell University, located in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York State, is a center for discovery, academic leadership, and service. As the federal land-grant institution of New York State, Cornell has a responsibility - unique within the Ivy League - to make contributions in all fields of knowledge in a manner that prioritizes public engagement to help improve the quality of life in our state, the nation, and the world.
The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) is a free, confidential resource for benefits-eligible faculty, staff, postdocs, retirees, and their partners/spouses to help them resolve concerns that may impact their personal and/or professional lives. Through brief counseling services, referral assistance to local providers, integrated consultation services, and crisis response and community support to the larger university community, our professional counselors provide specialized care to meet the unique needs of Cornell's faculty and staff members. The provision of services encourages a work environment of wellbeing, inclusion, and personal development.
