Confidentiality

  • The entire staff at the Counseling Center values confidentiality. We are all personally, professionally, and legally committed to your right to privacy. We promise that what you discuss with your counselor will remain confidential within the Counseling Center.
  • The exceptions to this are court ordered records, mandated counseling, if it is a matter of saving your life or someone else's, or where we are required by law to report current child abuse or elder abuse.
  • Outside of the exceptions listed above, we will tell no one about why you came here, what you talked about with your counselor or even if you are a client - not your friends, not your parents, not your teachers, not your Resident Assistant or any other college official. If you want us to speak to someone, we can only do so with your permission.
  • We do keep statistics on our services and include them in our semi-annual reports. Individuals are not identified nor are they identifiable. Our goal is to provide you with a warm, friendly and professional service.
