The staff at the Counseling Center is available to any student of the University community for personal and confidential consultation, as well as individual and group counseling.
Sometimes students have personal problems they may wish to discuss with a counselor. These may be related to the transition from high school to college or to decision-making regarding a variety of challenges that may occur in the life of a college student. Finding ways to talk about the stresses of life can often make the difference between an average college experience and an exceptional one.
All Counseling Center professional staff are licensed in psychology, counseling or social work, and are available to help students make the most out of their years at the University. Supervised doctoral candidates/interns may also be available to work with students.
***The Counseling Center does not provide online or remote counseling services at this time. However, the Counseling Center staff can direct online students towards a variety of supportive services within the student's locality or assist in utilizing common national online support sites based on their presenting concerns***
The University of Scranton Counseling Center joins with the broader Student Life, as we commit ourselves to the integration of high-quality student learning with the development of the whole person. For the Counseling Center, this entails the promotion of well-being, personal growth, and interpersonal development of all students at the University.
Mindful of our Jesuit tradition, we emphasize respect for the student both as a unique individual and as a member of the University. In service of the student, the Counseling Center collaborates with and acts as a consultant to all divisions of the University.
While we work primarily with individuals and small groups within the University community, we are also keenly aware of our role in forming men and women, who will be agents of change in the world community.
