New EAP Provider
Effective July 1, Bowen Center became our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provider. Benefits-eligible employees and their covered dependents may visit our EAP provider for up to three free visits per presenting problem. If additional counseling is needed, options will be discussed with the individual. Bowen Center will continue to provide monthly Lunch and Learn sessions and offer counseling on campus. Need to reach out to the Bowen Center? Call 1-800-342-5653.

Ready to Get Fit?
Human Resources and Office of Institutional Equity (HR/OIE) and Judy Tillapaugh, director of wellness and fitness, have been working to bring you additional fitness options. A new partnership with the YMCA will bring fitness to the whole family at a reduced monthly rate through payroll deductions. You can purchase Gates Center memberships through payroll deductions as well! Both of these options will start in August. More details to come!
Be Part of the Proud Crowd

IPFW staff and faculty "stars" are needed for crowd video footage for a short video that will be shown to faculty and staff. Gather in the Atrium area near the bookstore at 11:30 a.m on Wednesday, July 27, just before the Summerfest luncheon.

We would like a huge crowd of proud IPFW people! It will only take 15 or 20 minutes. For more information, contact Bernie Lohmuller at or 481-6056.

Thanks for a Successful United Way Campaign

The 2016 United Way Campaign concluded this spring and exceeded last year's participation and giving.

Here's the breakdown:
  • Benefited faculty and staff gave or pledged more than $20,000
  • The participation rate was 12.5%.
  • Participation increased by 40 employees
  • Giving increased by more than $3,000 
To celebrate the increased participation, the co-chairs have decided to award prizes to 15 employees selected at random. Winners will be contacted directly. Congratulations to all, and thanks to the IPFW community for LIVING UNITED and supporting our local agencies.
