It is a place where students, parents, and staff can turn for help and guidance in times of need. Our staff is committed to helping students develop as individuals while pursuing their educational and career goals.
Our goal is to provide caring services to students, as well as their friends and family, during times of need. Services may include referral for academic and personal problems, crisis outreach, response in case of student death or injury, and helping students feel supported in the university environment.
The emphasis of services is to provide brief intervention in a student's life that may assist in decision making, skill building, or mental health support. The overriding goal for all students is to help them maintain successful academic progress.
