Personal or Crisis Counseling
We understand that being a college student can present its challenges. Counselors are here to help students navigate through these challenges:
- Assist students in finding solutions to personal problems that may be affecting their academic progress.
- Provide short-term counseling and refer students to appropriate outside agencies for individual psychological or psychiatric therapy.
- Offer support to students with a respect and understanding for their backgrounds, cultural values, gender, communication styles, abilities and weaknesses.
Counselors may also assist in referring students with a CARES Report. The CARES (Campus Assessment, Response, Evaluation, and Support) team provides a coordinated analysis and response plan for the college's high-risk students and critical incident cases within the framework of assuring a safe campus community.
