Our Outreach Mission Statement
It is our mission at CWC to go beyond the walls of our offices and reach out to the campus community to promote psychological and interpersonal wellness on campus. We lead our outreach work with a multicultural, developmental, and holistic perspective that is collaborative in spirit. We believe that a healthy environment is an essential piece for the individual students’ wellness and academic success.
We also partner with campus community members in creating a socially just climate that sustains and fosters wellness, diversity, and inclusion at UF. Together we have the power to engage in meaningful and effective prevention and wellness work through raising awareness, increasing knowledge, and building skills.

We consistently work with student groups and organizations. We receive requests from all campus community partners: students, staff, faculty, and administrators. To the extent that our clinicians’ schedule allows, we provide outreach services directly to staff, faculty, and administrators to enhance their understanding of CWC services and their skills to support UF students.
We will then consult with you to clarify your outreach needs and help you find the best fitting resource, within or outside of CWC. Our clinicians’ schedules fill up two weeks in advance.
To be able to accommodate your request, we ask that you reach out to us at least 3-4 weeks before your event to increase the likelihood that we may find someone to meet your request. We may not be able to accommodate requests made less than 3 weeks in advance. At the peak time of Fall and Spring semesters (October-December, and March-April) our CWC providers are unable to meet interview requests for academic purposes and our presence for outreach events may be limited.
We know that you might have a quick deadline and at times you need a prompt reply. At the same time, our providers tend to have full schedules and our on-call providers attend to students walking in with urgent needs. Therefore, we are not able to provide same-day interview requests.
Please complete this Media Interview Request form and we will be happy to get back with you within 3 business days.
