Counselors are also available for consultation to help staff, faculty and students determine if a referral for counseling is needed, to answer questions and give information and to provide feedback on a given situation.


Referrals to outside agencies are made if the student needs more intensive therapy, has psychiatric or psychological concerns, needs a diagnosis for treatment or needs an evaluation. Counselors will assist students in finding the right place for them to go and will work with them until that linkage has been made in the community.
