Student Counseling Services

Each Lander student’s University experience is, ideally, a time of personal as well as intellectual growth. Sometimes personal problems can develop which make it difficult for a student to achieve success. Counseling Services helps students in dealing with these problems once they occur.

Personal Counseling is available at no charge. These counseling sessions are confidential and tailored to accommodate each student’s needs.

If more long term or specialized services are needed, counselors can make referrals to off-campus resources. Personal counseling is accessible by appointment or on a walk-in basis for students willing to wait for counselor availability.
