As a part of that ongoing work, we’ve pulled together some components we’ve drawn best practice inspiration from in an effort to provide resources to the campus community. This list captures a fraction of information available; we encourage you to continue your learning.

We provide counseling services to foster students’ growth in mind, body and spirit. Counselors offer flexible and varied approaches to help students accomplish their personal and academic goals and maximize their campus experience.
