College and university counseling centers are being influenced by changing populations of students and the concerns of a variety of constituencies and stakeholders about mental health issues. Although counseling centers can be important institutional resources in matters of recruitment, retention, and risk management, new legal and ethical issues and concerns about training programs have emerged. This article reviews research on these emerging questions and discusses how institutions of higher education will choose to respond to the questions that college and university counseling centers are facing. Some of the questions confronting college and university counseling centers are presented.
