The Counseling Center's mission is to provide high-quality, confidential psychological services that facilitate student progress toward age-appropriate, healthy and mature psychological and social development. These include counseling, prevention and crisis services focused on emotion-regulation and self-care, exploration of personal identities, establishing and maintaining healthy interdependent relationships, and developing life-skills necessary to thrive in adulthood. The Counseling Center also provides crisis services in support of safety of our students and the campus community, and provides psychological consultation to students, faculty, staff and families of our students.
Sometimes, students may experience a medical need that requires some time away from campus. When students who take a medical leave are ready to return, the Campus Life team is ready to assist with that transition and ensure all of the required steps for a successful transition occur, prior to returning to campus.
