Community Advising Network

The Community Advising Network (CAN) is comprised of a diverse team of counselors who are here to help students achieve their goals and address factors that may be affecting their academic success.  CAN Counselors are here to support students through informal consultations and/or through therapy. To schedule your first appointment with a CAN counselor, reach out to them directly via email rather than scheduling through Health-e-Messaging. You can find their contact information in the profiles below.

  • Anxiety
  • Addiction Issues
  • Family Expectations
  • Relationship Issues
