Mission Statement

The Counseling Service staff work collaboratively with students to foster their development as whole and resilient persons. This development process involves:

  • resolving personal concerns that often limit full participation in the academic community
  • enhancing coping and stress management skills
  • exploring and integrating personal identity
  • developing individual strengths to meet future challenges and opportunities
  • building healthy relationships and strong interpersonal skills

Counseling staff also seek to create an environment where faculty, staff, friends, and parents facilitate students' interpersonal growth.
