Mission and Values

The Counseling Center is a SAFE SPACE for individuals of all ethnicities, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, physical appearance/size, and gender identities.

All groups are free and confidential

For many emotional and relationship issues that college students face, group counseling is the best treatment choice. Groups provide students with the unique opportunity to utilize peer interaction to work toward improving themselves. At the Counseling Center, we offer a wide array of groups to address the needs of our students. 

Although many students are initially hesitant to join a group, participants consistently find groups to be a very beneficial and positive experience. New groups form each semester and typically meet on a weekly basis once they begin. In some cases, before joining a group or class, students meet with the group leaders to determine if a particular group or class is a good fit for them. 

To inquire about any of our groups or to set up a pre-group interview, please call 715-232-2468.
