As life offers predictable milestones—birth, growing up, education, relationships, family, aging—work has its own progression: choosing a career, starting a job, training, developing competence, advancement, and the transition into retirement.

Life & Work Connections provides lifecycle services to complement the work cycles of UA employees and students.

So wherever you are in the lifecycle—looking for newborn child care, striving to maintain or improve your physical or emotional health, caring for an aging parent, or trying to create a better balance between your work and personal life—we are committed to supporting you.
