Welcome to the Counseling Center

Approximately 40% of Lafayette students seek counseling during their college experience. Our counselors help students identify academic, social, and personal goals and develop strategies to be more resilient when they experience emotional distress or trauma. Counseling provides students with opportunities to generate new perspectives, try out new behaviors and attitudes, and develop greater self-understanding. Our counselors are committed to supporting all students and recognize that emotional well-being is vital to student success both inside and outside of the classroom.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Counseling Center strives to create an affirming, accessible, and welcoming environment that embraces and celebrates the diversity of our Lafayette community. We value the diversity of thought, perspective and experience that characterize our vibrant community. We recognize that individual characteristics such as race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, immigration status, ability, age, body size, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and religious and spiritual beliefs are central to shaping our identities. We believe that awareness of how our individual identities intersect is important to understanding ourselves, one another and our experiences in the world.
