Personal counseling is provided to students to improve coping strategies, resolve conflict, and handle crisis situations. Referrals to community agencies or resource persons are made if it is apparent that individuals can be assisted more effectively in this manner.
Career Counseling assists individuals in exploring interests, values, skills, personality, and aptitudes through personal counseling sessions, classroom presentations, use of the career resource collection, and use of on-line resources. The administration of career inventories provides an additional method of self-exploration. Utilization of these services early in a student's academic endeavors is encouraged. Services are also available to alumni and members of the community.
