A primary focus of the position will be to serve Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander students providing mental health services, as well as delivering programming and outreach. UNC Counseling and Psychological Services is committed to supporting this position with opportunities to foster Departmental and Campus-wide partnerships to build community and to develop innovative and creative approaches to best support the well-being of AAPI students.

The team also provides risk assessment evaluation for the Dean of Students office.

Campus Health Services and CAPS is a unique health care entity and position duties do not necessarily compare to an academic department or other service units of the University. We face many challenges associated with healthcare delivery that most job descriptions do not address, including Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) accreditation, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance, CPT and ICD-9 coding, billing, electronic health record, and electronic insurance filing.


Bachelor’s degree in a Human Services discipline with coursework related to the area of assignment. Some positions may require certification to practice as a certified or licensed Clinical Social Worker as required by the North Carolina Social Work Certification Board.


This position requires an MSW, who has been licensed as an LCSW-A by the North Carolina Social Work Certification and Licensure Board. A candidate with experience working in a clinical/therapy setting.
