For Faculty & Staff
In order to encourage a campus environment conducive to growth and enrichment, the Counseling Center offers consultation to faculty and staff. The aim is to promote helpful institutional policies and the understanding of student needs, as well as constructive approaches to student difficulties, including referring students to the Counseling Center when that may be beneficial. Faculty and staff who are concerned about a student - whether to refer; how to refer; what to do about a reluctant student - can call the Center at 456-8094 to discuss their concerns with a counselor and receive some suggestions. However, it is important for faculty and staff to understand that counseling is voluntary and should not be framed as a sanction for problem behavior or a condition for a continued privilege.
As time and resources allow, the Center tries to accommodate faculty and staff who may wish to have a confidential consultation regarding their own personal concerns.
