The mission of the Sam Houston State University Counseling Center is to provide service within the university environment that contributes to the academic success, personal growth, and positive social contribution of Sam Houston State University students. We embrace a student-oriented philosophy that is respectful of diversity and is committed to the development of the student as a whole person.
The staff members of the Sam Houston State University Counseling Center are sensitive to the diversity and richness that are an essential element of the human experience. As a staff we are devoted to honoring the differences that are represented by gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, social/economic class, outward appearance, body size/shape, disability, impairment, and political ideology. In addition, we are committed to confronting, in all of their various forms, prejudice, discrimination, and oppression.
Diversity is an important reality of our daily lives. We value the benefits that come from living and working in a multicultural campus community. Therefore, we endeavor to be accepting, supportive, respectful, affirming, and open-minded of those from diverse backgrounds. Our goal is to live out this value amongst ourselves, with our clients, and across the campus community. Our aim is for our daily interactions to honor the diversity among us.
