The Counseling Center provides consultations for students, parents, faculty, and staff who are concerned about a student's well-being.

We help individuals express their concerns in a respectful and effective manner, and we provide information about campus and local resources. While legal and ethical guidelines regarding confidentiality prevent the counselors from revealing any information about their contacts with a student without his or her permission, the counselors are very willing to provide support and guidance.

In situations where it is apparent that the student of concern may be engaging in behaviors that present a danger to himself or herself, or to others, the counselor will consult with the College’s Behavioral Health and Safety Review Team to ensure that the student receives the assistance he or she needs. If you are concerned about the safety or well-being of a Lafayette student, you may also complete the Student of Concern Alert Form to alert the Behavioral Health and Safety Review Team.
