Vision, Mission, Values

Our vision is a university counseling center where students identify and foster personal and external resources to help guide them in academic, social and emotional success, growth and development.
To bring this vision to reality:
•We provide counseling, psychotherapy and support services to currently enrolled students.
•We provide outreach, consultation and crisis intervention to the University of West Georgia community.
•We provide clinical training and supervision for graduate level counselors in training.
We always want the University community to be able to say that we are professional, competent, respectful, consistent, ethical, confidential, accessible, accepting, responsive and knowledgeable in the way we do our work.
