Vision
Services exist to support student learning, personal development, and overall academic success. By coaching students how to remove psychological barriers that threaten academic achievement and personal well-being, CAPS contributes to a safe and productive campus learning environment.

Mission
Counseling provides an opportunity for students to freely explore personal problems or concerns. Students come to the center for reasons as varied as the people themselves; personal problems involving relations, emotional or social difficulties, conflicts, anxiety or depression, sexuality and orientation, concerns about academic progress or direction, and other issues.

Goal
Counseling and Psychological Services strives to be of assistance for students in their pursuit of academic, personal and career goals.
