Mission Statement


University Counseling Center (UCC) is committed to excellence and believes in the value of the whole student. We strive to be student centered and to remove barriers to student success. University Counseling Center values individual and cultural differences with a commitment to human rights and equality. We embrace innovative clinical services, training of emerging mental health professionals, and research based clinical practice. We envision sharing our collective mental health expertise, building collaborative opportunities, and providing education and leadership at the university and on local, national, and international levels. University Counseling Center endeavors to create a diverse and multidisciplinary staff that values different perspectives and professional views. We aspire to develop a collegial, collaborative, communal environment that supports, values, and encourages both personal and professional development of staff.



The mission of the UCC is to provide a supportive climate for enrolled students to receive an array of mental health services to enhance their emotional growth and academic success during their college years and beyond. The counseling center houses four specialized services: Mental Health, Sexual Assault and Prevention, Substance Abuse and Prevention and Students with Disabilities Program. The University Counseling Center offers a range of services designed to promote the personal growth, academic success, and emotional health of students. Recognizing the interplay between students’ psychosocial development and academic performance, the Center’s holistic and student-centered approach to counseling allows the staff to help students learn to make reasoned decisions in the multiple areas of their academic and personal lives.
