Welcome to AUCCCO!
The Association for University and College Counseling Center Outreach (AUCCCO), is a national organization of counseling center professionals who are passionate about outreach. We are akin to the counseling center associations for Directors, Training Directors and Clinical Directors. We officially announced the establishment of our organization on June 5, 2009 at the University of Michigan during the closing ceremonies of our 2nd National Outreach Conference for Counseling Centers.
The mission of the AUCCCO is to assist professionals involved in the leadership of outreach, consultation, and campus community interventions. AUCCCO provides opportunities for networking, professional identity development, idea exchange and creating standards for quality outreach services. AUCCCO promotes a broad understanding of outreach, prevention and education services based on the assumption that outreach must extend the expertise of counseling centers to the larger campus community. AUCCCO recognizes that, as the campus climate has a profound influence on students’ lives, outreach services must be informed by perspectives that address the intersection of multiple social identities, promote social justice, and celebrate diversity in all its forms.

2019 Annual Conference Call for Proposals now Open!
Proposals for the 2019 AUCCCO Conference are now being accepted. Under the theme “Big Ideas in the Big Easy,” we encourage proposal submissions that reflect some of our biggest ideas, though they may often appear small in the beginning or have the biggest impact on just a few people. What “Big Ideas” have led to established outreach efforts on our campuses, fostered connections both on and off campus, and exemplified outreach as prevention and intervention. We look forward to a conference program that embodies the diversity, uniqueness, vibrancy, and spirit of NOLA.
The deadline to submit your proposal is Tuesday, January 29th!
