 Why Counseling Center Staff Are Leaving and Why We Should Take Notice

The Association for University and College Counseling Center Directors (AUCCCD) and the Center for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH) share and collaborate on data regarding counseling center trends. This blog, the first featuring our partnership, focuses on counseling center staff turnover. As part of the annual renewal process, CCMH requested turnover data from its member centers in Summer 2022 while AUCCCD requested turnover and recruitment data from its membership during the Fall of 2022. The data reflects information from the 2021-2022 academic year.
