Counseling and Psychological Services staff conduct preventative programming throughout the academic year focused on the developmental needs of students to maximize the potential of their academic experience.

Educational outreach workshops and events include National Suicide Prevention Week, Depression Screening Day, sessions on mindfulness and managing stress, sleep improvement workshops, and more.

Outreach programs and workshops benefit students by:

  • Helping students to acquire new knowledge, skills, and behaviors
  • Encouraging positive and realistic self-appraisal
  • Fostering personal, academic, and career choices
  • Enhancing the ability to relate mutually and meaningfully with others
  • Increasing the capacity to engage in a personally satisfying and effective style of living

Our programs are responsive to sexual and relational orientation, gender identity, racial, cultural, disability, and ethnic diversity among students, and reach students who are less likely to make use of traditional counseling services.

Virtual Drop-in Groups

For Fall 2020, Counseling and Psychological Services is offering non-clinical virtual drop-in groups designed to help students thrive and connect during a time of transition and uncertainty. These groups provide an opportunity to discuss reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic and its many consequences, including:

  • Abrupt transition to online learning
  • Unexpectedly leave your campus community
  • Adjusting to living at home again with family, friends, or alone
  • Grief regarding important semester milestones being cancelled or postponed
  • Fear about illness
  • Uncertainty about co-ops and jobs

A full listing of connections and registration for an upcoming session is available via CampusGroups.
