Despite successful methods to provide support and services to the WPI community, the Student Development and Counseling Center(SDCC) is an underutilized resource. Stigmas are attached to seeking counseling, preventing some students from getting the guidance they need. This project explored potential areas for SDCC visibility increase. Outreach plans such as collaboration with The Towers, an Advanced SSN program, and a list of future programs were developed. Emphasis was placed on reorganizing the SDCC website. Observations of the current usability of the SDCC website were quantified using Urchin and Camtasia software. The addition of videos, restructuring of content, improvement of staff pages, and increase in navigational options were among the website alterations.
