COLUMBIA, Mo. — The safety, security and well-being of students, faculty and staff remain the top priority of the University of Missouri.

As the university continues regularly scheduled classes and research operations, officials want to ensure that students are aware of resources available to them.

“We are increasing the number of available counselors and continue to have an after-hours phone line for students to call if they need to talk with someone,” said Cathy Scroggs, vice chancellor for Student Affairs. “The Counseling Center has its full staff ready to assist and has additional counselors on standby as needed. In addition, Counseling Center staff are actively reaching out to key student groups to offer assistance. We know our students are still processing their emotions and feelings about the events over the last several days. I’m very thankful to our MUPD and our campus community for continuing to keep our campus safe.”

Students wishing to contact a counselor should call the Counseling Center main number at 573-882-6601 for assistance 24/7.  Other resources include Student Health at 563-882-7481 and the Psychological Services Clinic at 573-882-4677.
