University Counseling Center

An increasing number of students report a variety of stressors that lead to mental health concerns during their time in college. Helping students effectively address these issues leads to an improvement of overall personal well-being. Support of our counseling center helps us equip students with skills through the psychoeducational programs that can decrease the likelihood that they develop mental health issues. We provide outpatient therapy services to help students identify issues and make healthy changes. We also aim to provide students with professional resources during times of mental health crises or emergencies.

Student Disability Services

Over the past four years, Student Disability Services (SDS) has seen a 68 percent increase in students with disabilities registered with the department. Research shows that college students with disabilities are at increased risk of academic difficulties and have lower retention and graduation rates than college students without disabilities. We work with individual students, developing accommodation plans to assist in the removal of academic barriers that may impact opportunities for success. We also collaborate with the larger university community to create environments that enhance opportunities for academic success, retention, and graduation.
