Message From Our Director

Welcome to the Marshall University Counseling Center’s Be HERD website. Here you will find information about the Marshall University Counseling Center, services, resources, contact information, and other valuable counseling and wellness information. We offer services for all Marshall University students, and we also provide counseling, wellness, and outreach services to student athletes. We want to assist student athletes with building healthy minds and healthy bodies. Being a student athlete is an honor and very rewarding, but can come with stress, challenges, and the need to employ mental performance techniques. We are here to help!

Our primary goal is to support the mission of Marshall University and the Division of Student Affairs by providing support and assistance to develop students’ personal growth, academic success, and mental health. We are also here to support the Athletics program here at Marshall, as well as coaches and staff. The Marshall University Counseling Center recognizes and supports the diverse needs of students through counseling, assessment, outreach, training, and educational activities.

We want our students to know We Are… Here for You and we are here to provide you support along your academic and athletic journey
