The University Counseling Center ushered in a new era with the resignation of Associate Director Barbara Brown last week.
Brown denied that her resignation is connected to the revelations about the supposed mismanagement, which led to high counselor turnover rates at UCC.
And while the true reason for Brown’s resignation many never be known, what is clear is that UCC can now start with a clean slate.
Although the University has taken action with its internal review of the counseling center, the outreach cannot stop there. Students, faculty and counselors should be consulted throughout the coming months as the search for a new director begins.
UCC is beginning to recover, but the University still has plenty of unfinished business to take care of to restore the reputation and stature of the center.
