How Can We Help?

Campus Resources: A Quick Overview

We want to connect with you and we also know that navigating the complex array of campus resources can be confusing! So we're sharing a quick overview of some important campus resources as you start your journey as a Bearcat!


This team, part of the Dean of Students office, works to support students with widespread and specific concerns. You can go to the CARE Team if you don't know where to go for help and they will work to connect you to resources and help you cope with complex situations. The CARE Team also handles the course withdrawal process.

Counseling Center

At some point during their college experience, students may encounter personal, social, career or academic issues that call for assistance beyond the advice provided by friends and family. That's where the University Counseling Center (UCC) can help. The UCC provides a variety of free and confidential counseling and referral services delivered by professional counselors.

Critical Thinking Lab

Whether you are a beginning student or advanced, the Critical Thinking Lab can help you with your essays, summaries, formal arguments, in-class writing, speeches, presentations, and application materials. We recognize that critical thinking takes many forms—writing, reading, speaking, listening—and occurs at all stages of the creation process—questioning, analyzing, brainstorming, synthesizing, outlining, articulating, and revising. Visit us, and we'll think about your work together.
