The Psychological Counseling Center (PCC) promotes student success through interventions specific to the diverse college community. Programming, training, consultation, crisis intervention, group therapy, and short-term individual counseling are provided for currently registered students when clinically appropriate. Our focus is to facilitate academic, social, emotional and ethical development within the university learning community. All calls and inquiries about appointments and services are welcome.

PCC programs affiliated with academic departments include the Scholar's Mentorship Program, Academic Wellness Series, and Social Issues and College Life. The Center is the College's primary training site for the Psychology Department's MA Counseling program and an internship site for the MSW in Sociology.
