We believe that students are the principal agents of their own growth and offer a variety of services to them and to the university community to facilitate that development.  In addition, the staff believes that inherent to the concept of a university counseling center is the goal of training and developing future generations of mental health practitioners.  In this way, the Counseling Center not only supports, but is also actively engaged in the educational process.
