It is the Mission of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) to offer a variety of free and confidential psychological services aimed to help students in their emotional, relational and behavioral growth.
Our Vision is to promote the personal and emotional growth, coping ability, problem-solving ability, and self-management of CSN student services. We believe that education is not limited solely to academic knowledge and that academic success is not only dependent on study and test-taking skills. Academic and career success can be facilitated by developing students' appreciation of the integration of behaviors, belief systems, emotions, interpersonal interactions and even their own health issues. Counseling and Psychological Services strives to help students to pursue their academic, personal and career goals.
