We focus on keeping our students well so our students can focus on changing the world. Student Development cares for the whole person as an embodiment of cura personalis, or care of the whole person. We know that
student success and wellness are inextricably linked. Through our Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), we support students’ mental health so they can thrive and meet their educational goals. Mental health is one of the single most impactful issues facing college students today and we ask for your help in supporting our students.
Student Development provides services ranging from online screening and individual consultations to wellness clinics, the Sanvello mental health app, individual therapy, training for staff and faculty, and support for students in crisis. By supporting the Mental Health & Wellness Fund, you provide students with proactive tools and responsive services that demonstrate care for their wellbeing.
