COAST Outreach Services

Counseling services staff members and peer educators partner with other University departments to create a healthy living environment on campus and teach students to practice healthy habits. COAST stands for Counseling Outreach Advocacy Student Team.

The COAST provides:

  • Informational handouts and brochures for students on a wide variety of mental health and other wellness-related topics;
  • Internship opportunities for students who are interested in the helping professions (psychology, health sciences, sociology, women's and gender studies, and communication), and public speaking and event planning;
  • Opportunities to get involved with the Women's Resource Cooperative (WRC);
  • Opportunities for collaboration with student clubs and organizations, campus departments and faculty/staff; and
  • Free condoms for students.
