Mission Statement

The Counseling Center holds the fundamental belief that a student’s intellectual and personal development are inseparable, and that the University’s primary academic mission is most fully served through the development of the whole person. The center strives to achieve this through the delivery of a variety of services intended to enhance personal and academic effectiveness, interpersonal growth, emotional support in crisis conditions, and promote a healthy campus environment. In addition, it is our belief that systemic social inequalities exists which impacts the growth, development, and sense of worth and wellness of students. It is our belief that responsible action must take place which addresses and strives to eliminate forms of oppression which diminish wholeness and effectiveness (e.g., racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, classism, and other biases).
