Counseling and Student Services

Student Services

The Office of Counseling and Student Services is integral to the School's educational mission of human development. To assist students in their personal growth and in achieving their educational objectives, we collaborate with faculty, School, and University administrators and students to provide programs, services, and opportunities that are responsive to the dynamic nature of the educational process; enrich the educational experience for the School’s diverse undergraduate and graduate student population; and embody the School's concern for all phases of a student’s development and the diversity of student needs.
