Faculty & Staff

Purpose

The purpose of this site is to offer some answers to these questions by describing the services of the University Counseling Center and how our staff can respond via consultation and/or referral to the Center. Providing direct, confidential assistance to students is our most important task and is what we do best. The University Counseling Center is the only service on campus whose primary mission is to provide psychological counseling for students.

 

A Note to Staff

As a member of our University community, you impact the lives of our students on a daily basis.  Students often go to you when they need support or have questions.  Therefore, students may see you as the first person to go to when they are upset or concerned about school. You may be the first (or only) person who recognizes that a student is not functioning well, either academically or personally.

What can you do when you suspect a student may need help, and you are willing to take the initiative and reach out to him or her? How involved should you be? What is your appropriate role?

This information is intended to help you reach out to the student and to link them to the help they need. While you are not expected to assess and treat mental health problems, you are in a position to recognize distress and are responsible for inquiring further about the situation. Mental Health issues can impact and sometimes jeopardize student college careers. Reaching out to students not only helps them personally, but enhances their academic success.
