Providing for Students

I want to congratulate the counselors and staff for their productive and hard work and I want to share with everyone the following report from Terry Armstrong and the Counseling Office.

As you’ll note below, the members of the Counseling Center (counselors and staff) set a number of records in ’08-09.

Most number of student appointments in the last 8 years*

Lowest unfilled appointment rate in the last 8 years *

Lowest vacancy rate (i.e. unfilled appointments + no shows) in the last 8 years*

An absolutely sterling performance last year. Granted, in ’09-10 we will have fewer counselors (Carla Chamber’s retirement, and Kathleen Costa’s new position), and we probably won’t have the capacity to achieve at last year’s level, but the efficiencies that you have developed over the last few years will serve to maximize student access to counseling services.
