Benefits

SU Employee Benefits

SU is a progressive, family-friendly employer, providing employees with a benefit program responsive both to the diversity of its community and to the many life changes individuals experience during their employment. Qualified employees are eligible for the majority of benefits immediately upon hire. The subsidized and employee pay-all programs listed at left are available to qualified employees.

SU contributes a significant amount of the cost of such benefits as health insurance, retirement plan contribution, and tuition assistance, valued at approximately 40 percent of an employee’s annual wages and resulting in a generous total compensation package.

The University conducts an Open Enrollment annually, when employees may change their benefits. Outside of the Open Enrollment period, no changes may be made except in the case of a qualifying family status change.
