Welcome to Counseling Services
Counseling Services, an International Association of Counseling Services (IACS) accredited unit in the Division of Student Affairs, offers a variety of services to help all currently enrolled North Carolina A&T State University students address
challenges and difficulties they may face. Our services are designed to help students understand themselves better, create and maintain healthy relationships, improve their academic performance and make satisfying career and life choices. We are dedicated to helping our students by providing brief counseling from a wide spectrum of services. Those include individual and group counseling, outreach and consultation, training and supervision, teaching, psychological testing, and research. If more intensive or specialized care is needed, we will assist with making referrals to healthcare providers in the community.
Counseling Services of North Carolina A&T State University has made a strong commitment to meeting the needs of culturally diverse people. As a staff, we are addressing issues of diversity in our clinical work, training, programming and consultation, and staff development. Cultural diversity in this context includes people of diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, gender, socioeconomic class, sexual/affectional orientation, mental and physical abilities, religious and spiritual beliefs. In this definition we acknowledge those groups of people and cultures across a wide range of human differences that have traditionally and historically been underrepresented, underserved and discriminated against in our society. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all counseling sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in any of these programs, please contact Counseling Services at 334-7727 in advance to discuss your needs.
On-line Training for Staff and Faculty
At-Risk, a free on-line training, is available to North Carolina A&T State University staff and faculty to help identify persons experiencing emotional/psychological distress. The interactive training provides information how to broach the subject of professional counseling and make a referral.
Alcohol and Marijuana Use
The Alcohol and Marijuana e-CheckUpToGo are interactive web surveys that allow college and university students to enter information about their drinking patterns and receive feedback about their use of alcohol. Each assessment takes about 6-7 minutes to complete, is self-guided, and requires no face-to-face contact time with a counselor or administrator. More information is available on our e-CheckUpToGo page.
