The challenges of college—and of everyday life—can be daunting. A new resource that is part of the larger SoE Cares program will give undergraduates access to a dedicated counselor who is there to help students through those challenges.
Taylor Underwood, a doctoral student in Counseling Psychology, will serve as the dedicated counselor for the next academic year. Students can schedule a session with her and discuss any problems they’re going through.
“They can talk about home, their relationships, any concern they’re facing with their mental health. It’s really open ended. We just want to serve the students in whatever way they need it,” Underwood said. “I hope our undergraduate majors all feel like they’re having a great experience, and I hope just in general the School of Education becomes a very safe place for a lot of people.”
