Welcome to the Counseling and Student Development Center. Did you know that as an enrolled UDC student, you have access to free professional counseling services?

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.  There are many reasons why students come to the Center.

We can help with a wide range of services, including individual and group counseling, medication services, substance abuse help, career advice, academic support, and consultation.

Call us today at 202.274.6000.

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.
