Please take time to read our Welcome Letter.

A special statement from the MSU Counseling Center: The MSU Counseling Center (MSUCC) has a longstanding tradition of service to all students, includiing a commitment to a diverse clinical staff and a service model deeply informed by multiculturalism, social justice, racial responsiveness, and cultural competency. The recent events in Ferguson, MO and across the nation have prompted a wide range of responses among people concerned with issues of racism, discrimination, and social justice. The MSU community is actively processing these responses in an effort to support students and initiate constructive action. For example, there was a town hall discussion held on the evening of December 4th, 2014. Members of the MSU Counseling Center were present at that discussion and we would like to continue to offer our support to students who have been affected by these issues.

As part of our ongoing commitment, MSUCC would like to acknowledge the profound feelings of grief, outrage, fear, and compassion associated with these events. We would like to extend our services, through outreach as well as individual and group counseling, to any students who identify as being in need of professional support. These issues are both very public and very personal for many of us. Students deserve options for safe, supportive dialogue around their experiences and reactions. Please feel free to contact us or to review our website for campus and community resources and information.

Please note:  If you are unable to come in during walk-in hours, you may call 517-355-8270, and the initial interview can be conducted by phone
