The mission of the Wellness, Health& Counseling Services Cluster is to support the campus' goal of achieving greater levels of academic excellence. We believe that academic excellence is facilitated when students have a strong mind, a healthy body, an enlivened spirit and a clear aspiration nurtured in a supportive environment. In assessing and addressing the needs of our students, our focus is placed not only on counseling and treatment plans, but also on the expectation that students will play an active role in developing strategies on their own behalf.
Our units (the Career Center, the Counseling Center, the Health Education Center, and Student Health Center) are committed to a holistic orientation to service delivery which involves impacting not only students, but the entire UCI campus community and academic climate.
Beyond managing the services, units, and financial resources of this cluster my role also includes: contributing constructive advocacy around issues that impact mental and physical health and wellbeing of our campus community; providing academic and co-curricular instruction to students; manage critical incidents of an urgent or critical circumstance; provide consultation on a range of issues impacting the campus community; and engage in developing and nurturing strategic partnerships with other campus and non-university entities in order to help meet the needs of our student community.
