ASU Counseling Services work to support the academic mission of the university by providing mental health, consultation, and outreach services that facilitate the student learning experience and student success in persistence and graduation.
To promote academic success, honor diversity, and to facilitate human potential.
Diversity and Inclusivity
ASU Counseling Services values the diversity represented within the student population, including culture, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, religion, students with military experience and students with disabilities. We respect and appreciate the unique history of each student. We are committed to meeting the needs of diverse people and providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere that is sensitive to all students. Each ASU counseling center prioritizes immediate access to services to ensure that all who request or need services can be seen within the same day.
Consistent with our commitment to ensuring a welcoming and respectful environment for all students, all ASU Counseling Service staff complete Safezone and Dreamzone trainings. Counseling staff also have additional advanced training and experience in issues facing university students and are committed to helping them adjust to campus life and meet their academic goals. Select examples of advanced training for all ASU Counseling staff include:
