E-mail Confidentiality Is Not Guaranteed

We cannot guarantee that your e-mail will remain confidential. We will do our best to keep your communications private. However, our university administration, like many other employers, reserves the right to monitor our email usage and might therefore see your message. If you are in any way concerned about the contents of your e-mail being read by someone other than the person you are contacting, you should consider alternate ways of contacting us.

When we respond to your email, we will respond to the address from which it is sent. If you do not wish others who may have access to the email account you are using to also have access to our response, please consider another means of communication.

Online Counseling and Advice

Unfortunately, email is not an appropriate medium for personal counseling. Therefore, we do not offer online counseling.
