The University Counseling Center contributes to the overall academic mission of the University of Notre Dame within the context of the Division of Student Affairs. We recognize that the stress associated with a high pressure academic environment at a critical developmental period often leads to or reveals problems which can be alleviated through therapeutic intervention. Our mission is to provide counseling and crisis intervention to the students of the University, consultation services to the campus community, and supervision and training opportunities for future psychologists. While sensitive to the unique characteristics of an intelligent, highly motivated, predominantly Catholic student body, we remain committed to the practice of psychology as determined by the ethical code of the American Psychological Association and the laws of the state of Indiana. We affirm diversity and are committed to creating an environment that recognizes the inherent value and dignity of each person.
