General Information

Mission Statement

The Department of Counseling Services offers professional and confidential counseling for developmental, educational and career goals. Counseling creates an opportunity to address concerns about personal, social and emotional growth to enhance a successful university experience.



In keeping with accepted professional practice, counseling contacts with students are strictly confidential. No information is released without the student's written

authorization, except as required by law. Exceptions include situations in which a student clearly represents a danger to self or others, child abuse, abuse of the elderly, or a court order.


Due to the lack of privacy and confidentiality of e-mail, it would be in your best interest not to e-mail counselors about information that you wish kept confidential or private.
