Academic Foci



The Advisement Center Staff believe that in order to have a positive impact on students in the program, we must be student centered. To accomplish this, services provided to students must be holistic in nature and individually applied. When we understand that each person is different culturally, emotionally, morally, and economically, we understand that counseling approaches must vary depending on the individual. We also understand that counseling delivery methods include individual, small and large group sessions, and computer-assisted programs. The highest level of ethical standards, confidentiality and moral integrity should always be practiced. Furthermore, we must recognize that in order to meet the total needs of a student, it is necessary to also seek assistance from resources outside the  STARS program.
