Counseling and Psychological Services
In February, CAPS announced that it selected three interns for 2010-11 to complete 12-month, full-time internships in its American Psychological Association accredited doctoral internship program. Selected interns are Landon Berger, M.S., from the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology/Stanford University; Galatia Cepeda, M.S., from Idaho State University; and Shiva Sarabi, M.A., from Wright Institute.
Student Health Services
In mid-July, Student Health Services received word that it was awarded three-year accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. This finding indicates that SHS has met national standards for quality health care. Three years of preparation preceded the review and included updating all policies and procedures, completing quality improvement projects and conducting numerous patient feedback surveys.
In other news, SHS has established a survivor empowerment group for students who have experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment and/or a stalking incident. Within the safe and confidential setting of the group, students are able to share about the harm done to them either psychologically, emotionally or physically through acts of sexual assault. Group members gain additional strength, understanding and hope in responding to their own victimization. The group also is open to victims’ friends and relatives. For information, contact SHS at (562) 985-1732.
Student Life and Development
In a collaborative effort, SLD and University Outreach and School Relations developed an outreach program that featured noon rallies at local high schools that recognized students who have been accepted to CSULB and provided students with a glimpse of the academic and social opportunities available at the university. Participating high schools included Jordan, Artesia, Mayfair and Long Beach Poly. The rallies gave students the chance to interact with current CSULB students and gather information about what the university has to offer inside and outside the classroom. Students also were encouraged to attend the third annual Step N2 The Beach program and the 19th annual Long Beach Step Show on March 21. The Step N2 The Beach program connected prospective students with current CSULB students, faculty and student support services staff.
