Who can I send students to as Confidential Counselors

On-campus counseling services are available 24 hours a day to all students. Students are encouraged to work with College counselors, who will provide confidential counseling or refer students to local police, mental health agencies and other off-campus agencies if appropriate and/or as requested by the student. Click here for more information on the Counseling and Accommodations Service Center. 

At Champlain College, the professional counselors at the Counseling and Accommodations Services Center and the licensed professionals at the Student Health Center respect and protect confidential communications from students to the extent that they are able to do so under applicable law. This means that in most cases, these confidential resources will not inform anyone of such communications without a student's consent, and the College will not endeavor to take any action in response to such communications. These professionals may have the responsibility to disclose otherwise-privileged information appropriately when they perceive an immediate and/or serious threat to any person or property. In addition, medical and mental health professionals are required by law to report any allegation of sexual assault of a person under age 18. Students who wish to talk about sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking-related issues confidentially, with the understanding that the College will not take any action based on such confidential communications, are encouraged to contact one of these confidential resources.

These confidential resources will provide the individual with assistance if the individual wishes to pursue those options, regardless of whether the individual wishes to pursue a complaint within the College or with outside law enforcement.
