More On This Announcement

The EKU Counseling Center (EKUCC) has been re-accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services (IACS), the accreditation association for university and college counseling centers. The EKUCC was evaluated for its compliance with the IACS Standards, the highest standards available for campus counseling centers, and was found to offer outstanding professional services to its clientele.

IACS' beginnings reach back to the late 1940's when it started out as a committee of the National Vocational Guidance Association. IACS was established as an association in 1972 to encourage and aid counseling services to meet high professional standards through peer evaluation and to inform the public about campus counseling services that are competent and reliable.
