Counseling Mission Statement

The mission of the Counseling Department is to promote and enhance the learning process. To this end, the counseling staff offers a wide range of programs and services designed to facilitate student growth in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social development.

Students meet with counselors to discuss concerns in an atmosphere of confidentiality.  Appointments are scheduled at a time convenient for students and least disruptive to the educational program. Students can sign-up in the Counseling Office for an appointment with their counselor.
