Counseling and Testing Center

Many people are upset about the recent incidents of racial injustice and racial violence in our country. We encourage students who would like support to talk about these concerns to contact the Counseling and Testing Center (CTC). The CTC stands in solidarity with our campus community to eliminate racial injustice and promote a culture of equity and inclusion.

Posted March 18: The Counseling and Testing Center has suspended face-to-face individual counseling, group counseling, workshops, and psychological assessments (i.e., learning disorder, ADHD). We will continue with individual counseling services via telephone counseling to reduce the spread COVID-19 (coronavirus). To make an appointment, please call 330-972-7082. This is a temporary change, but we are unable to identify an end date to this change due to the constantly evolving nature of this public health crisis. We will continue to communicate with you regarding any changes to our service delivery.
