Counseling Center Mission and Vision
We help students effectively manage academic, developmental, and interpersonal challenges to support them as empowered student-citizens. We provide individual counseling, crisis assessment, community outreach and preventative programming, and consultation to staff and faculty.
We work to increase awareness of mental health as part of student’s overall wellness and to decrease the stigma of mental health conditions, issues, and treatment. We provide clinical mental health services in the Counseling Center and promote accessibility and visibility within the campus community
