Mission

The mission of the Counseling Cohort is to assist students to define and accomplish personal, academic and career goals. We believe that college counseling is an integral and essential service that helps students have a positive and rewarding educational experience.  Counselors work to help students achieve academic, personal, and social success.  A primary function of counseling is to plan and execute a program of study that appropriately reflects the interests, potential, and motivation of students.  This function is best accomplished by counselor’s maintaining an open and flexible response to varied student population.
