Community-Based Counseling

In Community-Based Counseling, CAPS counselors are placed within departments, professional schools, and cultural centers throughout campus at set days and times. By embedding themselves in these spaces, counselors are able to build relationships, familiarity, comfort, and trust with the students, staff, and faculty within the community.
