Overview

The MU Career Center provides a full range of counseling services for MU students, alumni, faculty members and community members.

Counselors are graduate students in training who are receiving licensed supervision to provide individual counseling on a wide range of career, academic, and social issues. Career issues may be clients’ initial concern, but academic and personal issues may emerge in counseling and can be discussed and explored as well.

Counseling services are only available during the fall and spring academic semesters. During summer and winter breaks, please email CareerCounseling@missouri.edu or visit the MU Career Center for assistance.
