About Us

In line with City College's vision of access to excellence, it is the mission of the Counseling Center to provide high quality counseling services that are accessible to all City College students.

We provide short-term, student-centered and culturally informed psychological services from a modern and integrative theoretical orientation, treating all students with respect and recognition of their unique strengths. We are a liaison to the community, linking students to more intensive and longer term services when needed. We are committed to supporting faculty in the identification of students who may benefit from our services and reaching students in need. We provide education to the City College community and work towards wellness and prevention in our outreach models.

Our goal is to assist students in the resolution of any barriers that may hinder their ability to achieve their highest academic potential, while ensuring their mental health needs are met, regardless of ability to pay.
