In conjunction with Body Positivity Week, internationally renowned poet, Sonya Renee Taylor, is being brought to UCA to host a workshop and poetry reading on women's bodies. The aim is to let go of media-driven standards of how one should look and to instead embrace who you are!

The UCA Counseling Center provides mental health counseling, and other counseling services, for all currently enrolled UCA students as well as UCA faculty and staff. We are accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services.
Our staff consists of five counselors and psychologists. We also have Masters-level graduate trainees who provide counseling under the supervision of the professional staff.
The mission of the Counseling Center is to meet the mental health needs of the vibrant, diverse UCA community. We encourage, support, and assist those whom we serve to develop and strengthen their knowledge, skills, and abilities in order to effectively meet life's demands and challenges. We aim to be respectful toward everyone we serve, sensitive to diversity, true to our professional ethics, and ever mindful of the trust placed in us to genuinely care for others.
