The CU Thrive Program Has Been Discontinued

As of December 31, 2017, the CU Thrive program will be discontinued and will not be continuing on into 2018.

The program has had a number of successes, but the rapidly changing internet landscape and the ways new students are using technology requires a greater degree of flexibility and engagement than the current platform can accommodate. Redevelopment of CU Thrive to meet these increased needs cannot currently be accomplished.

We would like to thank each of you for helping promote, providing information, and supporting CU Thrive for our students, faculty, and staff on your websites and verbally. And thanks to the University IT department for their assistance in helping the Counseling & Psychological Services Center in fostering the program on campus.

Due to this discontinuation, we are asking that you remove the links or mention of CU Thrive on your Appalachian websites, AppSync, and any social media sites that might include links or mentions of CU Thrive. A quick check found mention of CU Thrive on your pages:

The Counseling Center will be removing and archiving any and all of our CU Thrive information prior to December 31, 2017.

Additional similar information can be found on our Self-Help & Free Screenings page.

Thank you again for your support of CU Thrive and the Counseling & Psychological Services Center.
