Welcome to the ACCCCS!

The Association for the Coordination of Counseling Center Clinical Services (ACCCCS) was formed in November, 1996, when a group of clinical services coordinators and clinical services directors representing colleges and universities from around the country met at The Ohio State University to discuss common interests and concerns.

Membership in the association is open to any staff member in a 2-year or 4-year college or university counseling center who is directly responsible for coordinating the clinical service aspect of the agency’s services, including the day-to-day coordination and implementation of those clinical services.  Although most centers have one person in this role, some centers have two persons who share the responsibility of overseeing clinical services; each is eligible for membership and each pays the membership fee.  Our 200+ members hold a variety of titles including associate director, assistant director, clinical coordinator, staff clinician, and a few are directors of small centers.  Our aim is to be welcoming and inclusive to all persons in college and university counseling centers with responsibility for the coordination of clinical services.

The 2022 ACCCCS Conference will be held virtually 

A message from our president...

Hello colleagues and friends. I hope you are all well. I wanted to let you know that, after much thought and careful consideration, the Executive Board and I have decided to have another virtual conference in 2022. We think it’s the best choice for the safety and wellness of our membership, but we’re so disappointed not to get to see you in person.

There are many unknowns with COVID-19 and potential institutional travel restrictions, so we want to plan effectively for a successful conference, even if virtual. We are ironing out the details, but we can confirm the conference will take place the May 23-26, 2022.  More details will come as we put plans in place, so stay tuned.

I hope that this update, while disappointing, gives you a sense of certainty in what is proving to be another challenging, unpredictable year.
