The mission of the University Counseling Service is to provide compassionate psychological services, outreach, and training that foster the mental health of students, nurture student success, and contribute to a safe, welcoming, and multiculturally aware campus community.
Who We Are
The UCS has an inter-disciplinary multicultural staff of psychologists, social workers, graduate interns, practicum students, and administrative professionals. Our training and interests span a broad range of counseling approaches. Each staff member has training and experience working with college students.
In all individual, group, and program services we strive to create an environment where all people feel welcome. As a staff, we attempt to facilitate mutual respect and understanding among people of diverse racial, ethnic, national, and cultural backgrounds, sexual/affectional orientation, mental and physical abilities, language, class, age, religion/spiritual beliefs, as well as other types of diversity.

As someone who cares about students and their well-being, it is completely understandable that you may want to know specifics regarding the therapeutic content and/or services that a student might be participating in at the UCS.Learn More
