Fall 2020 practices

University Counseling Service (UCS) continues to remain fully operational while serving students via telemental health services, as it has been since March 2020. Group therapy, outreach programming, workshops, support groups, and Let's Talk, Hawks!  will resume in the fall semester and will be offered via Zoom.
Should the use of telemental health not be readily accessible for a student, UCS will support that student in considering and accessing options to meet their needs (including use of alternative private space, accessing technology, and/or use of phone communication).
