On-Campus Counseling Services for Employees and Faculty

Walk-in Support Services on Tuesday and Wednesday

Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counselors will be on campus Tuesday and Wednesday to provide in-person grief counseling for employees and faculty impacted by the tragic passing of Avery Kim.

Each day, there will be a blend of group and individual sessions to allow individuals to access different formats of support. Individuals who are interested in accessing this resource can go to the meeting room locations listed below. Individual sessions will be held in a nearby breakout room location, but please go to the listed locations to check in with the on-site counselor.

Tuesday, April 9 1:00p-4:00p in College Center 223 Multi-Purpose Room,
2nd Floor Main Buiding

Wednesday, April 10 9:00a-12:00p in Ordan Meeting Room,
