More Counselors on Campus

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


According to the University of Maryland, College Park's Undergraduate Admissions website, there are 28,472 undergraduate students enrolled as of Fall 2017. The counseling center at UMD has 16 staff psychologists and 4 psychology interns. We all know that being a college student is stressful on campus and oftentimes even off campus. The university does a series of events to help reduce this stress not only by having events but also by providing counseling services. Although we do have a counseling center, if each psychologist was assigned to 1000 students, there would still be a lack of psychologists. And although not every student uses the counseling services provided, it would still be beneficial to have more staff to ensure that no Terp is left behind or waiting. By signing this petition, you are agreeing that more staff is needed on the UMD campus to ensure our students will always have a professional to talk to in their time of need.
