The Counseling Center provides short-term “focused” counseling to assist students in developing personal goals and to help them in acquiring strategies for coping with obstacles that prevent them from concentrating on their education.
The office is staffed by counseling professionals trained and experienced in addressing the needs of university students. Occasionally, students have concerns that may require specialized services; the staff can serve as consultants in the process of referrals to appropriate community professionals. Fees incurred for services beyond the scope of the Counseling Center are the responsibility of the individual student.
Student identities and any disclosures made in the course of the counseling relationship are confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside the center without the student’s expressed written consent, unless there is clear and imminent danger to him/herself or another person.
Counseling Center appointments can be arranged by students calling extension 4168.
