About the Community Advising Network


What is the Community Advising Network?

A team of six CAPS Community Counselors comprise the Community Advising Network (CAN) and assist all students, especially those from underserved populations, to achieve their goals and address factors that may be affecting their academic success.

Community Counselors serve as a starting point for students who may need personal, social or academic support but are not sure where to turn. They are a culturally diverse group of professional staff who understand student issues and are here to help. Community Counselors are integrated into many units for easy access and provide a bridge to other campus and community resources and services as appropriate.

Community Counselors provide students with consultation and personal counseling in addition to programs, workshops and other campus community outreach activities. They are also available to staff and faculty for consultation and referral.
