Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) Mission Statement

We work collaboratively with students to meet their mental health needs and to promote their academic success and personal growth.  Our staff members are committed to meeting the highest ethical and professional standards in our provision of psychological services.  We are dedicated to creating an affirming, respectful, and inclusive atmosphere for individuals of all cultures, ethnicities, races, colors, ancestries, ages, sexual and romantic orientations, gender identities and expressions, abilities, neurodivergent identities, body shapes and sizes, national origins, immigration status, military status, familial and marital status, pregnancy experiences, health status, socioeconomic and class backgrounds, spiritual practices, ideological affiliations, all other perspectives, characteristics, and life experiences.  Additionally, we understand and appreciate that identity is intersectional, and that the human experience is a unique collection of attributes that extends beyond this list of categories.  We stand for and support the protection of human rights.
