1. The Objectives of Student Life Counseling

 a. Ideas behind the Counseling Center

   In addition to remedy counseling, it is most important to carry out preventive and flexible counseling. Our university education is moving towards autonomy and independent development, opening doors to community concerns and services. In accordance with these ideas and student needs, we plan to implement proactive counseling policies and directions for future development.
 
        On the other hand, due to the rapid vicissitudes in the social environment, the entire learning environment is being questioned. The population of single-parent families is increasing year by year. The students from single-parent families often have a difficult time adapting to school. Their parents lack confidence in discipline. Teachers rely on punishments too much to discipline their students. There is conflict between parents and teachers time and again. The competence of counseling is obviously insufficient and the sense of responsibility is lowered day after day. In society, self-indulgence prevails and pornography resides. Violence is spread through campus and the community. Under the uncertain social climate, young students are becoming a new challenge for university counseling services.
 
        In conclusion, the development and direction of our counseling objectives is centered on catching up with the times: to make our counseling center services readily available to the public, to boost the counseling competence of educators, to deliver community services, to share counseling resources with friends and to develop new features.


        b. Future Focus of the Counseling Center

       (1)To set up a counseling-resource network and fulfill counseling tasks effectively.
