Counseling and Student Development Center

OUR VISION We are here to meet the unique challenges of our culturally diverse clientele/students.

OUR PHILOSOPHY We believe that every student has basic and unique needs which must be fulfilled in order to function successfully in a learning environment.

THE MISSION The UDC Counseling and Student Development Center is dedicated to promoting psychological wellbeing that enriches personal, career and academic growth. We provide a broad range of high quality, innovative, and ethical services, resources and information to students, staff and faculty. The Counseling Center also actively contributes to the campus' broader academic mission by training and developing students and professionals, helping build a multicultural learning community, and providing leadership through collaborative partnerships.

THE CENTER PROMOTES We promote student growth along a broad spectrum with an emphasis on fostering the ability to relate to others in meaningful and mutually satisfying ways. The Center helps students develop realistic and positive self-image while making appropriate personal, academic, and occupational choices.

The college experience can be great, but it can also be stressful, lonely, and even overwhelming at times. You may be dealing with personal, family, financial, academic, or career difficulties. These are just some of the many reasons students come to us. No issue is too big or too small.

We help you by offering a safe space to explore your issues to achieve your personal, career and academic growth. Our diverse staff has a range of training and experience and is knowledgeable about and sensitive to the needs of a multicultural student body. Our counselors are trained to assist you with a variety of concerns including life transitions, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-esteem, acculturation, relationship issues, and family problems.

The UDC Counseling and Student Development Center offers individual counseling, medication referrals, and workshops on a variety of topics related to student wellness.
