The Counseling Center staff consists of mental health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, and social workers. All are trained and experienced in dealing with issues facing university students. Doctoral candidates in clinical and counseling psychology, working under close supervision, also provide counseling services. A sports psychology consultant is available for students interested in learning cognitive strategies to enhance their athletic or academic performance. These appointments are made by a referral from the staff.
