The Counseling Center serves as the primary mental health agency for CUA students. Our mission is to enhance the overall educational experience by assisting students with the opportunities, demands, and challenges of university life. As students grow and develop, they do so in a values-based institution that offers a unique learning and living environment to enable students to discover excellence and experience success. The Counseling Center assists students with defining and accomplishing personal and academic goals by serving as a multidisciplinary, campus-based mental health organization dedicated to addressing the diverse needs of CUA students. In pursuing an active and fulfilling college life, students can experience difficulties balancing and adjusting to new roles and responsibilities. The Counseling Center provides a broad range of direct services, including counseling, educational learning assistance, consultation, outreach, training, assessment, and emergency response programs.
