We reach outside the physical walls of the center to provide interactive and engaging presentations, workshops, and consultation.
Workshops and Presentations
We offer these free workshops/presentations to student groups and living units throughout the year on a variety of issues relevant to students and student life, including:
An explanation of what counseling may look like and services offered by the University Counseling Center, as well as other resources and supports for students on campus.
Participants in this workshop will learn more about common mental health struggles, techniques to reduce stress, and resources they can utilize as students. This workshop will also give time for Q&A throughout the workshop.
