Good Fit Benefit Plan

PLU is proud to provide a comprehensive benefits program which offers a variety of benefit options to meet the diverse needs of our employees. From medical care to retirement – with wellness ideas, time off benefits and continuing education opportunities in between – Good Fit was created because we understand that one size doesn’t fit all.

Some of the benefits PLU offers include:

  • Retirement: The University’s 403b retirement plan is one of the best offered by small private universities
  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Life and disability insurance
  • Tuition Remission, Tuition Waiver, and Tuition Exchange (available for employees and dependents)
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Time-off benefits: PLU offers very generous time-off programs, including vacation and holidays
  • Transportation incentives: Regional Transit Pass, Zipcar, and Emergency Ride Home
  • Sabbatical program
  • University ID card: Obtain free or discounted admission to various facilities (library, pool, fitness center, etc.), productions, and events
  • Training and professional development opportunities
