Job Description: The Center for Counseling and Student Development at East Carolina University invites applications for 2 staff counselors committed to working with the college student population. The Center for Counseling and Student Development is a valued member of the larger university community and the Division of Student Affairs. CCSD is the primary counseling center on campus and provides comprehensive mental health treatment via a multi-disciplinary team. Primary responsibilities of these positions include offering short-term therapy, crisis intervention, outreach and consultation services to the university community.

The Center for Counseling and Student Development is appreciative of diversity, and our staff represents the inclusive definition of diversity which we embrace. The Center seeks colleagues who are eager to create and manage a diverse, and often heavy clinical caseload. Outreach to underrepresented or underserved populations is considered particularly beneficial.

Counseling individuals and groups regarding personal, social, career and academic development represents the bulk of the staff counselor's work week. Another primary responsibility is crisis intervention services. These services are administered through consultation, direct assessment/evaluation, counseling, referral and follow-up. Crisis services occur on a rotating basis during business hours (8-5), and additionally on a weekly basis for after-hours crisis coverage. The after-hours coverage does include evenings, weekends, and some holidays.

Additional staff counselor responsibilities include providing outreach on both a proactive basis as well as responding to the numerous requests for programs that come in every semester from various offices across campus. Further position duties might include: internal and external committee work, teaching a college adjustment course, and involvement in professional development activities.

In summary, CCSD seeks candidates who are comfortable working in a collaborative team approach and are very much committed to the mission of developing healthy and academically successful college students in a diverse college student body. The Center embraces a development perspective, so successful candidates will be knowledgeable, comfortable, and invested in working with students from this viewpoint. Because CCSD is a heavily utilized counseling center, the successful candidates will also be ones who are able to manage a large caseload and are able to provide some weekend and evening coverage for both outreach and/or crisis services.
