Counseling Services

The mission of Arcadia University Counseling Services is to assist students through personal challenges that may interfere with their academic success. Counselors provide a safe, confidential place in which students have an opportunity to identify their problem areas and find creative solutions to them. Counseling Services also provides educational programs, consultation and outreach to the larger campus community regarding prevention and overall emotional health and wellness. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment that is respectful to the diversity of our students.
