Dear Students,

Welcome to the spring 2021 semester at SUNY New Paltz!

PCC staff are ready and willing to support you, whether you return to campus, live in the village of New Paltz, or remain at home or another location to complete the spring semester.

We are here to listen, support, and respond to you using sensitive, mindful, and productive interventions that respect diversity in race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, religion, and ability. 

As always, we are available 24/7 when classes are in session during the academic year, including weekends.  During the Covid-19 pandemic period, PCC services will be provided by phone or video tele-counseling.  To schedule an appointment, please call our office line at 845-257-2920 during business hours.  In the event of a mental health emergency, which may occur during the day, after hours, or on the weekend, call the same office line, 845-257-2920, and follow the prompts to be connected to a PCC counselor.  Be sure to speak your name and phone number clearly if you are asked to leave a message.

We look forward to working with you.

Best wishes,

Gweneth Lloyd, DSW, LCSW-R, PCC Director, and the PCC Staff
