  • Director’s Message

    Our mission, under the auspices of the Office of Student and Academic Support, is designed to help students to meet their personal, social, and academic needs. Counselors are involved in helping students explore their needs, feelings, interpersonal relationships and life goals. Personal development workshops, individual, and group counseling sessions for personal issues and support groups for non-traditional students, readmitted suspensions, and probationary status students are strategies employed by counselors to maximize student’s growth and successful completion of the University experience.


    Confidentiality: Counseling sessions take place in private, and the relationship between counselors and students are held in strictest confidence.

    Group Counseling: Counseling groups are available to students on an on-going basis. Meetings may be weekly or bi-monthly. Counselors facilitate the group activities and monitor the group’s growth process. Groups may be formed in any area of the student’s interest. For example, depression/anxiety support for students dealing with those issues, and Female Bonding Group where female students address serious issues that affect them daily.

    Individual Counseling: Students have the opportunity to meet with a professional counselor to explore and define individual concerns. Counselors work with students in terms of personal assessment, social development, and academic achievement. Counselors are helpful for students in exploring feelings, weighing alternatives, and making any appropriate referrals to on or off-campus resources.

    Substance Abuse Counseling: Substance Abuse Counseling is provided by trained professional staff to help students examine their attitudes about alcohol and other drugs and to help them privately assess how and why they use chemicals. The staff also offers various strategies for successful rehabilitation.

    Crisis Intervention: Counselors may be utilized for any occurrence on the campus that is highly volatile, and/or emergency situation requiring immediate remedial or corrective action where counseling skills are appropriate.

    Personal Development Workshops: Workshops are designed to address student’s developmental needs and issues. They focus on non-academic factors which affect retention, and are intended to acquaint students with various factors which are related to “college survival.” In this respect, they especially survey the role of their feelings and relationships and how they successfully impact achievement of good college grades.

    Inventories and Career Exploration: The Counseling Center provides interest inventories and career exploration counseling in cooperation with the Campus Careers Planning Office.
