New Counselor-In-Residence (CIR) Program at UF

Ypsilanti, Daniel

What is CIR?

The Counselor-in-Residence (CIR) program is a collaborative counseling service between UF Housing and Residence Education and the UF Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) for students living in residence halls and Graduate and Family Housing.

The program is designed to improve accessibility and opportunity for student residents to receive support by offering counseling services in the places where students spend most of their time. We are currently located at Cypress Hall and hope to expand this service across campus.

How CIR Can Help

The CIR program is a proactive approach to responding to the mental health and well-being of student residents. The CIR is a licensed mental health clinician with advanced training in counseling, helping skills and crisis situations.

Some of the issues a CIR can help with are:

  • adjusting to college
  • anger
  • stress
  • grief
  • relationships
  • roommate problems
  • and more…
