Abstract

To best meet student needs, university counseling centers must be aware of gradual changes within the campus population and how needs change across time. A needs assessment can help match services to student needs. The university counseling center at F.H.S.U., the Kelly Center, has not conducted a needs assessment of its services since expanding the nature of services in 1991. The present study examined how services at the Kelly Center are perceived and measured the level of knowledge students/faculty have of those services. 54 faculty members and 672 students at F.H.S.U. completed surveys during the last two weeks of spring 1995 classes. The following hypotheses were supported by this study: (1) Faculty have greater knowledge than students of the services provided by the Kelly Center; (2) Students who have previously used Kelly Center services have greater knowledge of the services offered; and (3) Faculty rated personal counseling and psychological services higher in importance than did students.
