Bemidji State University’s 2019 Outstanding Contribution team award goes to the Student Center for Health and Counseling (SCHC) counselors, a group of dedicated professionals who were called upon to support our students during an extremely difficult and sensitive time.
Facing urgent need from dozens of students in the face of tragedy, SCHC made themselves available for as much time as possible to help, with particular effort being made to ensure students were seen the same day as their request for an appointment whenever possible. SCHC also took requests to meet with groups of students, as well. Demand was so great that an additional member was hired for their team.
A nominating colleague said of SCHC, “during a time when the college needed their best effort, they stepped up to the challenge and assured these visits were as successful as they could be.”
