SRU Counseling Center meets IACS standards

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. –The International Association of Counseling Services has informed Slippery Rock University’s Student Counseling Center that it has again met its standards of counseling practice

In a letter to SRU, the Alexandria, Va.,-based organization said SRU’s center “offers competent and reliable professional services to its clientele.”

Approval by IACS is also dependent on evidence of continuing professional development as well as demonstration of excellence of counseling performance.
