Outreach and Consultation
Workshops and Other Programs
The Counseling Center is happy to assist the individuals and groups within the University community who are working to promote the personal, social, and intellectual development of students. In the past, interested student groups, personnel, sororities and fraternities, academic departments and instructors, and other groups have requested that we conduct programs, workshops, and presentations related to career and educational decision-making, improving academic effectiveness, and personal and social issues. Some example of these topics are:
- Understanding stress and its management
- Eating disorders
- Testing tips
- How to get accommodations for disabilities
- Suicide: facts and fables
- Adult children of alcoholic parents
- Protecting yourself: date rape and safety issues
- Alcohol/drug awareness
- What is your personality type
- Assertiveness training
- Study skills
- Self hypnosis for stress management
- Test anxiety management
- Career interest testing
- Building self esteem
- Time management
- Our workshops and presentations typically require a one to two-hour time slot, though some topics require more time than this. The topics above may need to be modified or narrowed to fit certain time frames and special situations or interests.
Your Own Ideas. The programs and workshops listed here are intended to give you an idea of the types of services we have provided in the past. Our staff is available to design programs on other topics to meet your specific needs and concerns. We will also help individuals and groups in the development and implementation of their own programs.

RED CARD: Recognizing and Reaching Out to Students of Concern
This informational guide provides resources to help faculty and staff recognize and assist students of concern. As staff and faculty, you are often the first to see distressed and/or disruptive students. As such, you are in a position to encourage and help students connect to the supports they need. Your expression of concern and offering of resources could be critical in helping to save a student from emotional, academic and other distress.
