About the Counseling Center

Who we are...

The Counseling Center is committed to providing professional and confidential services to our University Community for growth, development, health, and empowerment in life and academics. We also serve as a resource to students seeking help for a friend, and for faculty and staff seeking information on how to refer a student for assistance.
