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 2021 ACCCCS Conference - 25th Anniversary Edition will be held via virtually 

A message from our president...

Please join us for our 25th Anniversary Conference! We are excited to announce our Virtual Conference will be May 24-27, 2021. The conference will be held between 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm EDST each of those days to allow for as many of our members to be present as possible. We are exploring ways to offer a balance of learning and connection through a virtual experience. We have also reduced the registration cost to only $25 (as in $25 for 25 years) as we do not have to contract for conference rooms or meals. If you are interested in attending, there is still time to register.  Please click the link above for more information about the conference, the schedule, and programs that will be presented.
