Additional Services for Students
We offer support services for students that are designed to be accessible and convenient by providing programming, resources, and an opportunity to connect with our staff when you need it and most often on campus. We aspire to offer both formal and informal supports to students in our community. Below are a few of the services we offer as suport for students.
Peer to Peer Programs
Counseling and Psychological Services in collaboration with Student Wellness help facilitate a variety of peer to peer programs at the unviersity. Peer based support programs provide a valuable opportunity for students to engage their peer community in a supportive and inclusive way around topics of mental health and wellness. These resources are informal in nature and you do not need to be a client of CAPS to participate. Click here for more information.
