The From Intention to Action (FITA) program supports undergraduate and graduate students in the often stressful university experience. We help students to better manage stress and improve their academic performance, by navigating the personal stressors that can often get in the way of school. FIT: Action students meet 1-on-1 with a Coordinator for 1 hour every week for 12 consecutive weeks. Our Coordinators are staff members or Master’s-level interns trained in counseling and psychotherapy.

Often students feel overwhelmed and aren’t sure where to go. The most common ways we help are supportive counseling, stress management, coping skills, time management, and learning strategies.

Service Update:

As MacOdrum Library continues to be under ongoing construction, the From Intention to Action program has transitioned to providing services remotely during our regular business hours (Monday to Friday – 8:30 am to 4:30 pm). The best way to connect with FITA is by email ( You should receive a reply to your inquiry within 2-3 business days.

Students seeking same-day or crisis support, are encouraged to access Carleton’s counseling services here.
