Community Wellbeing is feeling connected to the communities
where you work and live
Our supportive, friendly campus community advocates for each individual’s voice to be heard. We encourage respect and civility toward everyone, knowing that mutual appreciation and dialogue leads to greater learning.

Breaking Bread in Unity
Introducing Breaking Bread in Unity, a brand new cooking show from Employee Health and Wellbeing. Preparing, cooking, sitting down together to break bread and enjoy a meal has been a way for human connection since the beginning of time. We are hoping to (virtually) bring the UD community together through food. This is open to any and all people of all heritages that’s an employee, retiree, faculty or staff.

Community Wellbeing Resources in the Community
UD’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a work-based program designed to assist employees in resolving personal problems that may be adversely affecting the employee’s performance and personal life.
The service includes a maximum of five (5) sessions at no cost. Should you need to go beyond five (5) sessions on a particular topic, ComPsych will work with your insurance to find in-network providers. Employees should use “State of Delaware” as their work location when logging in to the ComPsych portal for the first time.
