If you find yourself in a crisis or in need of some guidance in your workplace or personal life, turn to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). You can make a confidential appointment (usually for the same day) with an EAP professional. Counseling, coaching and other EAP services can help you cope with many difficulties in life.
Office of the Ombudsperson
Another resource for negotiating difficult situations is the Office of the Ombudsperson. An ombudsperson is a neutral party who can help you resolve conflicts and disputes. Issues brought to the NIU ombudsperson include cultural conflicts, financial concerns and disciplinary matters.
