The successful candidate will provide individual, group, psychoeducational, and consultative mental health services to a diverse and high achieving undergraduate population under the supervision of the Director of Counseling Services or their psychologist designee.

Counseling Services is comprised of the Director of Counseling Services, Associate Director, four licensed mental health providers, two part-time licensed mental health providers, and an administrative coordinator.

In addition, the ability to approach all professional duties with inclusivity, compassion, and cultural humility will be key to success in this role.

This is a 9-month position that will begin in August of 2024 and conclude in May of 2025, with the option of being extended for a second year. This is an exempt position requiring time commitment necessary to satisfactorily complete job requirements. Typical hours are 8:30am – 5:00pm but evening and weekend on call coverage is required.
