About the Counseling Center

Mission Statement

The mission of the Guidance and Counseling faculty and staff is to provide quality academic, career, and personal counseling services and quality guidance instruction to a diverse population of students.

Professional counseling matures the decision-making process and promotes student self-direction. This process is facilitated through:

  • development of appropriate career and academic goals
  • resolution of personal issues affecting programs of study
  • career assessment and planning
  • referral to educational, career, and personal growth resources.

Department staff demonstrate their commitment to these endeavors through:

  • a sincere and committed professional relationship with staff and faculty
  • acknowledgment of the student as a whole person
  • responsiveness to and advocacy for changing student needs
  • pursuit of continuous professional development.
