The University of Texas at Austin is a culturally diverse campus. It includes a student body of approximately 50,000, along with 3,000 faculty distributed among 53 different departments in 15 schools and colleges, along with a staff of nearly 18,000. Approximately 31% of students are members of ethnic minority groups (14% Asian American, 13% Hispanic, 3% African American), while an additional 9% are international students.
The Counseling and Mental Health Center (CMHC) provides a full range of university mental health services including time-limited individual therapy, group therapy, program development and outreach, psychiatric assessment and treatment, integrated health care, urgent care and telephone counseling and referral services. Training and supervision is provided to psychology and social work interns, psychiatric residents, and psychology practicum students. The center's large, multidisciplinary staff includes psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, licensed professional counselors and licensed marriage and family therapists.
The Counseling and Mental Health Center is committed to the promotion and affirmation of diversity in its broadest sense. Our mission requires that people of every background be able to use our services with an expectation of respectful treatment. CMHC has developed a "Statement on Diversity" that is available at www.utexas.edu/student/cmhc/diverse2.html . The University does not discriminate on any basis prohibited by applicable law including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, citizenship status, or veteran's status in recruitment, employment, promotion, compensation, benefits, or training. It is also the University's policy to maintain an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
