University Counseling Service (UCS) Student Advisory Board (SAB)

Interested in joining the University Counseling Service (UCS) Student Advisory Board (SAB)? The SAB assists our staff in exploring the best ways to:

  • Reach UI students
  • Improve mental health services on campus
  • Advertise our UCS services
  • Enrich our outreach work
  • Contribute to the facilitation of outreach programs
  • Expand our service publicity
  • Reduce the stigma of mental health treatment
  • Reach underserved UI populations

The Student Advisory Board (SAB) will consist of 10-12 undergraduate and graduate students from the University of Iowa who will use their experiences as a student to inform and contribute to key initiatives at University Counseling Service (UCS). A few examples of current initiatives include: the Therapists Are People?! podcast to promote mental wellness at the University, decreasing risky alcohol and drug use on campus by working with the Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP), and decreasing risk of suicide on campus by working with the Suicide Prevention Task Force.

The SAB will meet via Zoom from 2:00-3:00 pm on Friday afternoons each week during the fall 2021 semester. Students may apply for membership in the SAB by filling out the application. Applications due by Friday, September 3th.
