Counselors and Email

Counselors

Email Policy

The staff of Counseling Services welcomes your contact. We also value your privacy and time and therefore offer the following information to help you decide on the best method for reaching us.

  • Email is not an appropriate medium for personal counseling.
    If you are a UHCL student seeking personal counseling, please visit our office or call to make an appointment with one of our counselors.
  • We cannot guarantee that your email will remain confidential.
    While we will do our best to keep your communications private and will not disseminate them without your permission, our university administration, like many other employers, reserves the right to monitor our email usage and might therefore see the text of your message. If you are in any way concerned about the contents of your email being read by someone other than the person you are contacting, you might want to consider alternate ways of contacting that person.
  • When we respond to your email, we will respond to the address from which it is sent.
    If you do not wish others who may have access to the email account you are using to also have access to our response, please consider another means of communication.
  • While we check our email often, you have no way of knowing if one of us is unavailable due to illness, vacation, or other reason.
    This means that your message may not be received immediately. If time is of particular concern for you, you might want to consider calling the office instead.
  • Finally, due to conflicting demands on our time, we have had to develop priorities to help us determine how to best spend our resources.
    First and foremost, since we are funded by UHCL student fees, we place the highest priority on responding to UHCL students. While we welcome contact from others, at times of high demand we may not be able to respond to those not affiliated with UHCL.

We hope that these guidelines are helpful to you as you decide how best to reach our staff. We take your time and confidentiality very seriously and therefore consider it imperative that you understand the limitations of our use of email technology.
