Student Counseling Center
In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, the SCC is committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our community. Beginning Monday March 16 and until further notice, the SCC will provide all services through telephone appointments in an effort to adopt social distancing precautions.
Students should not come to the physical office. Counselors are available to support students via telephone appointments during our normal business hours. Students requesting appointments may call the office at 503-352-2191 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with us as we strive to continue to provide mental health services to our campus community during this time of uncertainty.

Staying Engaged and Connected during Social Distancing
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.
All groups have been canceled for the remainder of the semester due to COVID-19 concerns and social distancing precautions.
Please print and fill out forms and bring them with you to your initial consultation (note they can not be filled out or submitted electronically)
If you do not show for a scheduled appointment without canceling, a fee of $15.00 will be charged to your student account.
