Open Access Graduate Research Paper
There is a growing trend in colleges and universities throughout the country to reintegrate existing centralized counseling services by coordinating these resources through a decentralized concept. This has been particularly true in colleges where counseling has become an integral part of the educational program (Kapraun & Stephenson, 1982). Faculty and student personnel administrators realize that meeting student needs goes beyond acclimatization to the college environment. There is a growing momentum to go a step beyond acclimatization, to prevention, career vocational planning, lifelong wellness programming, and liaison counseling programs within the residence halls (Huebner, 1987; Kapraun & Stephenson, 1982; McLeod, Tercek, & Wisbey, 1985).
