UCS designs and implements presentations, programs, and workshops on a wide variety of psychology topics.

Staff members are trained as consultants to assist student groups in identifying more effective personal, interpersonal, and group functioning. We are available to provide presentations, programs, or workshops on a wide variety of topics. Program offerings often include academic skills, stress management, diversity, equity, and inclusion, suicide prevention, students in distress, and more. Let us know how we can work for you.

Outreach Services are available in virtual or in-person formats. However, due to the current rates of transmission, we are encouraging that programs be offered virtually as much as possible to support campus and community health.
