Welcome from the ECDS Department Head

Thank you for being interested in your future as demonstrated by visiting our Educational Counseling & Disabilities Services Web site. This site is designed to improve and enhance your planning and interactions with your professors and academic advisor, your parents and family, and those other interested people in your life. This Web site is not intended to replace your academic advisor! Bear in mind also, this Web page is not intended to be an all-inclusive "how-to" manual for figuring out your educational and career aspirations. Rather, it is meant to serve as a starting point for meaningful inquiry, an inquiry that should canvass many sources for insights and perspectives.

At Ferris State University the Educational Counseling & Disabilities Services processes are designed to teach you how to explore your academic and career options, examine your strengths, and set goals that will carry you throughout your lifetime. Your confidential counseling sessions are a chance to discuss these areas in your life with a licensed professional counselor.

We hope you find this Web site helpful and that we will be seeing you soon!

Deb Cox, LPC
Department Head, Educational Counseling & Disabilities Services
