Mission Statement

The MSU Denver Counseling Center assists students in the accomplishment of tasks that are essential to their personal and educational development.  Programming is designed to facilitate students’ retention and graduation by providing quality, time-effective services,  through individual, couples, and group counseling; outreach services; individual, organizational, and departmental consultation; crisis intervention; training; and research.

MSU Denver Counseling Center staff are involved in community building, prevention, and education, and thus collaborate and consult with other departments in order to improve the interrelationships of all areas of this urban university.  To this end, the staff promotes the understanding and integration of multicultural issues in all services and programs.  It is dedicated to building a university community that permits all of its members to grow and to be successful in an environment of equity, respect, and inclusion

It does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status.
