Employee Benefits

"Not Unto Ourselves Alone Are We Born"

Willamette's motto is inherent in the provision of benefits at our University. Willamette University strives to provide a highly-valued, well-rounded, and comprehensive benefits package that enables our faculty and staff to contribute to our mission without worrying about their health and welfare protections, or their and their family's future.

Faculty and staff who work at least .50 FTE (20 hours per week) are eligible for many benefits. On-going, part time faculty and staff who work at least .60 FTE (24 hours/week) are eligible for medical and dental benefits. Full-time faculty and staff who work .75 FTE (30 hours/week) are eligible to participate in the university's full benefit program. See the Benefits Guide for a complete listing of benefit options, eligibility, and coverage effective dates.

In addition to these benefits, both full and part time employees are eligible for paid leave, retirement options, tuition programs, and training programs. Use the links below or to the left for more information.
