To achieve this mission, CAPS offers time-limited individual psychotherapy; counseling; crisis intervention; preventative outreach programming; consultative services; and Resident Assistant Training. CAPS works collaboratively with Academic Services, Residential Life, Campus Safety, and other College offices.
