The Latasha Norman Center for Counseling and Disability Services received its name change in 2012 when the disability services program and the counseling program were unified in one location in the JSU Student Center. The original name was the Latasha Norman Center for Counseling & Psychological Services, established in 2007 as a tribute to the student, Latasha Norman, who died as a result of domestic violence.
