UCLA staff and faculty members who are military veterans will be able to receive walk-in counseling under a pilot program the Staff and Faculty Counseling Center launched early February.
Employees previously had to set up an appointment a week in advance to see a counselor, said Jorge Cherbosque, co-director of the UCLA Staff and Faculty Counseling Center. The new program will allow military veterans to receive walk-in treatment between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, Cherbosque added.
UCLA has been working to increase its employment of veterans to reflect the 7 percent national average, according to a UCLA Campus Human Resources report on staff affirmative action. UCLA hired 72 veterans out of the 4,151 employees hired in the last three years, according to the report.
