The counseling center honors diversity by treating all members of the Colgate community with respect, intentionally considering the needs of under-represented groups. We are dedicated to maintaining a welcoming and inclusive environment that recognizes the impact of stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, oppression, and privilege. We demonstrate our commitment to multicultural practices through engagement in intentional professional development and reflective supervision.
The counseling center is committed to providing high-quality, confidential, ethical, and culturally affirming mental health services to Colgate University students. The center offers individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, and prevention services. We are responsive to the developmental, cultural, and demographic diversity of our students as they pursue their Colgate education. As a department within and in support of the broader Office of the Dean of the College, the counseling center also provides consultation, outreach, and training services to all members of the Colgate community regarding mental health concerns.
