Counseling Center

Counseling is a process that helps people work out personal, academic, or vocational problems. The professional staff at the Counseling and Personal Development Center is available to assist students, staff, and faculty in the resolution of these problems. Through this process, people often gain increased awareness, independence, and effectiveness in the pursuit of personal goals. These services are available free of charge to members of the Pace community. The Counseling Center staff values the diversity of the Pace University community. We strive to create a safe, affirming, respectful, accepting and welcoming environment that embraces all forms of diversity: age, race, ethnicity, language, national origin, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, physical and mental ability, and socioeconomic status. In this climate, we hope that students will feel comfortable to freely explore their unique identities, personal experiences, attitudes, beliefs, and values. In turn, we hope to help students with the issues that bring them in and encourage their intellectual, emotional, and social development. We also see our mission as extending beyond the walls of our offices in order to promote and support a growth producing environment in the Pace community as a whole. Our goal and commitment is for all of our work to reflect the acceptance and inclusion of every person and embrace difference in our diverse campus environment.
