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.

View our Rising from the Margins web series holds space to support students in drawing on the wisdom of their own experiences of living in the margins.

Community Engagement

Staff from the Student Counseling Center enjoy connecting with our Pacific community in many ways, including facilitating mental health-related workshops. Fill out our Community Engagement Request Form so that we can collaborate with you. Please note that because of the high clinical demand at our center, we need at least two weeks’ notice to schedule an event. All requests are subject to approval by SCC staff and not all requests can be accommodated. We look forward to working with you!
