The University Counseling Center (UCC) offers a variety of services and interventions to
students who are currently enrolled at UCCS. Students are charged very affordable fees for
counseling services. As a way to address developmental needs, provide preventive
information and enhance the quality of campus life, UCCS conducts workshops on topics such
as acquaintance rape, healthy relationships, study skills and stress management. Please refer
to the following website for further information: www.uccs.edu/counsel.
University “professional counselors”, when acting as such, are not considered to be a campus
security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure
of crime statistics. Students who have been victims of crime and who address those issues in
therapy at the University Counseling Center are made aware of their reporting options and are
encouraged to report the crime as a part of therapy. However, it is made very clear to the
student that the final decision to report or not report is left up to the student. A summary of the
student issues that the University Counseling Center works with each year is recorded in a
counseling center annual report. This data is summarized by diagnoses and no names are
attached to the data. The counseling center report does not distinguish events that occurred in
the past year from events that occurred at any time in the student’s past, and it does not
distinguish reported events from non-reported events.
You may use the University’s on-line anonymous reporting option at
https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/en/report_custom.asp?clientid=14973. If you
choose the anonymous reporting please be aware that the report cannot be immediately
viewed. If there is an immediate threat to life or safety please call one of the above listed
phone numbers immediately.
