Counseling Center

Creating a non-judgmental and confidential space with affirming practices for students of diverse identities to feel safe sharing their concerns.

Welcome, Eagles!

With a team of licensed mental health professionals, we provide individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, substance misuse prevention and intervention, outreach programming and other services.

Our practices are grounded in multicultural perspectives to address the diverse identities represented within our student population and empower students to gain awareness of their interconnected lived experiences for healthy, sustainable wellness that supports their academic, social and emotional growth along with retention and graduation.
