The College of Veterinary Medicine will welcome an embedded counselor to its halls in early November, piloting a new element as part of campus-wide efforts to enhance mental health support.
Genel Gronkowski is a member of Cornell Health’s department of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and will work in CVM to support the mental health of its graduate and professional students.
“We are delighted to welcome Genel to Cornell,” says David Reetz, director of CAPS. “Her experience and training make her an excellent fit for this new position, and we look forward to learning and growing together in our ongoing efforts to improve the accessibility of mental health services. Furthering our reach into the College of Veterinary Medicine community will deepen our understanding of the student experience in the context of their learning space, and advance the entire Cornell Health team’s ability to effectively serve these students.”
