Student Counseling Center

The Student Counseling Center (SCC) strives to support students in reaching their academic potential by focusing on intellectual, emotional, social and cultural development. The SCC at Pacific University provides a range of services including consultation, crisis services, group therapy, and short-term individual therapy to students whose presenting concerns fall within our scope of practice and would be best served within our center.

Commitment to Equity and Inclusion

At the Student Counseling Center, we are committed to creating an environment that affirms, respects, and honors the diversity of our student body. We value the opportunity to work with students in exploring their intersecting identities around sex, gender, disability, sexual identity, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, body size, age, socioeconomic status, national origin, immigration status, and more. In advocating for students’ well-being, we bring an awareness of the impact of systemic oppression on mental health and acknowledge that our multicultural learning is an ongoing and intentional process. As a team, we welcome dialogue and feedback from our community as we strive to create a more inclusive and equitable center on our campus.

Join a counseling group!

We are excited to offer a new group this semester called Wise Mind: Building Emotional Resiliency for students to learn to manage difficult emotions. We continue to provide the skill-based Mindful Coping Group throughout the semester. And we are offering our Understanding Self and Others process group again this semester. Check out our group counseling page for full descriptions plus important dates and times.
