Outreach allows the CSC to increase college student mental health awareness through education, stigma reduction, and prevention.
The CSC offers programs and workshops for students, faculty, and staff. They are meant to enhance learning, development, and provide a venue for discussion to take place.
The Counseling Services Center provides a wide range of programs, workshops, and training for students, faculty, and staff. To accommodate the campus community and provide as many opportunities as possible, we require two weeks advance notice for all requests. This will allow us to prepare and provide quality education.
All requests must be submitted through the request form below. Do not send requests through email to individual staff members. Only inquiries submitted via the request form will receive a response.
Requests for interviews with campus and Oswego community members are given priority over requests for class projects and other assignments. Interviews for class projects and assignments will not occur during finals week.
Please refer to the Counseling Services Center website prior to making a request. Many frequently asked questions are answered on our site, and data about mental health issues, common presenting concerns, and treatment on college campuses can be found in the Center for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH) annual reports.
If you are interested in having one of our staff members present for a class, provide a workshop for your organization or residence hall, or train the members of your faculty and staff, please fill out the request form above so we can help meet your specific needs. If you are interested in something not listed here, please submit the request form and include a brief description of what you are looking for. Our Outreach Coordinator will contact you with options.
