Employee Benefits

Happy employees talking and laughing together on campus

George Fox University is proud to sponsor employee benefits and wellness programs designed to make your employment experience with us as professionally satisfying and fulfilling as it can be.

Beyond traditional benefits such as health and retirement plans, we also offer extensive perks, including employee assistance programs, employee discounts, access to campus resources and facilities, and wellness programs to improve your overall quality of life.

Health Benefits

We offer a choice between three different medical plans through the Providence Health Plan. Coverage under these plans includes comprehensive medical care, prescription drug and vision coverage, and alternative care. In addition, we offer all eligible employees and their dependents the option to elect for medical/prescription insurance, activate a Health Savings Account (HSA) and a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), and opt for dental insurance.

Each annual open enrollment gives you an opportunity to review your options and choose the plans that best fit your personal needs. Please see our most recent Employee Benefits Guide for a comprehensive summary of our health plan options.
