Counseling and Support

As a community of scholars, leaders, learners and practitioners, the College of Education is committed to advancing efforts that lead to safer and healthier communities for children and adults.


The college is home to several human resource professionals, including a Title IX coordinator, who are members of our Business Services Team

College-based Counseling for Students

Danie White, our Counselor in Academic Residence (CARE) counselor, is available to meet with students in need of mental health assistance.

Students can schedule an appointment with Danie by calling 512-232-6862 and asking to schedule a CARE appointment. Please let them know they should include their name, EID and contact number if they have to leave a voicemail.

Danie also has walk-in hours on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 – 2 PM in JES A115 and Tuesdays and Fridays from 1 ­– 2 PM in SZB 2.110.  Students should check in at the front desk of the office. The staff will let Danie know you’re waiting. All services are confidential and none of their information will be shared without their written consent.
