What is a Student Assistance Counselor?

A Student Assistance Counselor (SAC) assists students with any personal issue that negatively impacts their learning or emotional development. The SAC meets with students on an individual or small group basis to help them develop coping skills and solve problems.

Parents sometimes seek the assistance of the SAC for information, intervention and referral services. Faculty members often request the support of the SAC in order to identify individual students in need of help. The SAC may also provide training to staff on a wide range of issues that may impact student behavior and functioning in the classroom. 

All conversations between students and the SAC are confidential. However, issues related to suicidal or homicidal intent or child abuse are not protected by the federal confidentiality laws.
