A Message From Academic Affairs
At this mid-point of the academic year, the staff of the Student Counseling Service would like to remind you that we are here to assist you with any concerns you may be having about your students and advisees. We are perhaps the quietest and least visible student services office, but each year we see hundreds of students who are struggling with a wide variety of academic, health, family and interpersonal concerns that interfere with their ability to do their best in college. For newer faculty who may not know, our office is located in 206 Founders Hall. We are open Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Our services are free and confidential for all registered Augustana students. We have two full-time clinicians. Director Michael Tendall is a licensed clinical social worker, and Deborah VanSpeybroeck is a licensed clinical psychologist; both have decades of experience working with college students.
We encourage faculty to refer students to us who appear to be troubled or struggling. Appointments can typically be made within a few days by calling us at 794-7357. If you are concerned about a student and are not sure how to approach them, please feel free to call and ask to consult with one of us. We are here to support you in educating our students in mind, spirit and body
