Thank you for participating in this survey. The results gleaned are intended to assist in making best practice recommendations for counseling centers. Composite results will be shared with the listserv to assist others in making recommendations for their centers. Under no circumstances will individual responses be shared.  These questions are not duplicated questions from the National Survey of Counseling Center Directors or the AUCCCD survey.
