Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) seeks candidates for an exciting, new position of Coordinator of Multicultural Counseling.

One of four universities in the 17-member Connecticut State Colleges and Universities System, the University is located in New Haven, a culturally vibrant environment with easy access to New York City and Boston.


Reporting to the Director of Counseling Services, the Coordinator of Multicultural Counseling serves an essential role as a direct mental health service provider to all students with a special focus on underrepresented students.  The successful candidate will have a deep understanding of the impact that inequality, prejudice and marginalization can have on students from underrepresented populations, including students of color, international students, and/or students who identify as LGBTQIA, and have the skills and experience in therapy, consultation and outreach to address/diminish this impact.  The Coordinator of Multicultural Counseling will engage in meaningful outreach activities with appropriate community partners and cultural student groups intended to promote increased access for services. The Coordinator will engage in ongoing assessment of the needs of traditionally underrepresented students and develop and evaluate the Counseling Center’s clinical services, outreach and training to meet those needs. 


Additionally, this position requires strong, broad, generalist clinical skills to assess and intervene with a wide range of presenting student concerns within a time-limited treatment model. The Coordinator provides initial triage and intake assessments, group and individual counseling, crisis intervention, assessments regarding danger to self or others, referrals, outreach, psychoeducational workshops, and consultation.


The Coordinator of Multicultural Counseling is a full-time, 12-month position.




Successful candidates for this position will have a Master’s degree in counseling, social work, or related field, or a Doctoral degree in counseling or clinical psychology.  Must be licensed within one year of hire. Preferred experiences of the candidate include:
