Core Values of the Counseling & Psychological Services Center:

We value

  • the potential of every human being to change and to continue learning throughout the lifespan, in formal and informal settings, and especially in the environment of counseling and psychological services

  • strong relationships as the primary vehicle in helping others to learn new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, including collaboration within the university community and partnering with other offices to provide comprehensive mental health services to students

  • an emphasis on prevention of mental health problems via education, intervention and outreach into the University community

  • training new professionals and support for on-going training of staff

  • respect for diversity of individuals, their cultures, languages, lifestyles, identities, ideologies, intellectual capacities, personalities, and capabilities to expand our learning opportunities and understanding of global connections
