Counselor-in-Residence

The Counselor-in-Residence (CIR) program is a collaborative counseling service between University Housing and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) for students living in residence halls and university apartments. The program takes a proactive approach to helping students with reducing various stressors that can occur in the college environment.

A CIR is a doctoral student in the Counselor Education program with advanced training in counseling, helping skills and crisis situations. Some of the issues a CIR can help with are adjusting to college, anger, stress, grief, relationships, roommate problems, and time management, to name a few.

The Counselor-in-Residence is available by appointment during the week, or during posted office hours. If you need assistance contacting the CIR please see your Resident Assistant or your Coordinator for Residence Education. To make an appointment please contact a CIR listed below.
