Campus Resources

Mission, Vision and Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


The Center for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at UNC Charlotte supports the holistic well-being and academic success of students and contributes to a healthy and inclusive campus climate.  This is accomplished by providing short-term individual and group counseling, crisis management, consultation, referral services, and educational and preventive initiatives for the campus community. In addition, CAPS supports the academic mission of the University by serving as a training site for graduate students and supports scholarly activity and professional development of staff.


We aspire to promote optimal well-being by providing psychological services to the University community. This community will experience our center as a welcoming, affirming, and accessible campus resource, with a staff that is multidisciplinary and reflective of our diverse student body.


CAPS aspires to create an affirming, accessible, and safe environment that celebrates human diversity. We understand diversity to include but not be limited to: race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual identity, sex, age, socio-economic status, religion, ability, nationality, and language. We are dedicated to social justice through increased awareness of the effects of oppression, prejudice, and discrimination.
