The University Counseling Center (UCC), at the University of Notre Dame, seeks a talented and enthusiastic clinician to join our experienced team of mental health professionals at an exciting time of re-envisioning mental health care and health and wellness promotion on campus. As an integral part of the Health and Wellness Unit, within the Division of Student Affairs, the UCC supports the University's tradition of wellness with quality services, resources, and education to promote the development of healthy students and foster campus well-being.

The successful candidate will coordinate the UCC staff in providing diversity initiatives, including outreach to and engagement of the University's historically underrepresented student groups and the development of treatment options for students from diverse backgrounds that are culturally sensitive and meet student needs for prevention and treatment.

The University of Notre Dame, a Catholic institution founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross, is one of America's leading undergraduate teaching institutions, and is also at the forefront in research and scholarship. The University strives to educate our students holistically - mind, body, and spirit, and promote diversity and inclusion through academic inquiry and programs that reflect a foundational belief in the dignity of all. These values closely align with the UCC's commitment to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment where individuals of many social, economic, cultural, religious, ideological, racial, and ethnic backgrounds are supported in addressing their developmental and mental health concerns.

UCC clinicians provide initial consultations and crisis intervention services in our drop-in system, psychoeducational/skill building workshops, individual and group counseling, and short-term goal-oriented treatment within our stepped care model to a diverse population of undergraduate and graduate students. UCC staff also provide consultation and outreach programming to the broader university community and collaborate with other Student Affairs colleagues to address mental health issues and foster an inclusive campus climate. Staff members rotate after-hours emergency on-call coverage for week-long periods three-four times per calendar year. Clinicians are also integrally involved in the UCC's training program in Health Service Psychology that provides supervision and training for both doctoral psychology interns in the APA-accredited internship and practicum students in the University's Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program.

This is a permanent full-time, 11- or 12-month position. Anticipated start date is September 1, 2020.
