Should a student come to you with a serious emotional problem or, if you become concerned about a student's emotional health because of comments made in class or in writing, you may want to refer the student to the University Counseling Center. The University Counseling Center is part of the Dean of Students’ Office.
The most important aspect of engaging with a student is to communicate your interest and care. You do not need to have all the answers; responding to a person with honest, nonjudgmental feedback will improve the referral process. At the same time, be direct if you have a concern about safety. Equally important, if there is any doubt about the safety of situation, err on the side of caution, and do not hesitate to contact the Dean of Students Office or the University Counseling Center directly.
UW students may receive assistance with problems that interfere with academic progress, daily living, adjustment to university life, or relationship issues through group, individual, or couples counseling; crisis intervention services; or brief problem solving sessions. Drop-in, emergency hours and scheduled appointments are available daily. Most individual counseling is short-term and time-effective; most students get their needs met with four or fewer sessions.
UCC collaborates closely with the STOP Program in the Dean of Students Office by providing counseling support to students who are victims of sexual violence as well as collaborative programming regarding prevention of sexual violence and membership.
UCC Professional Staff are trained in helping students cope more effectively with the stresses that interfere with their academic progress. The counseling staff consists of licensed psychologists and counselors, as well as doctoral and masters level students who are completing their training in counseling and psychology.
All primary status enrolled UW students are eligible for free counseling, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status, political belief or progress toward academic degree. UCC is a Safe Zone for all students seeking services.
