Mission of the Counseling Center

The Notre Dame College Counseling Center (CC) is committed to providing excellence in psychotherapeutic services to promote student health and safety, personal growth and academic success. The CC provides an open and safe environment to encourage self-awareness, personal responsibility and healthy interpersonal relationships within a diverse and dynamic campus community. The CC is continually engaging in collaborative efforts throughout the campus community toward creating a meaningful and respectful learning environment in which to live and thrive.  


Clinicians are ethically committed to confidentiality which is also required by federal and State laws. This means that when you receive services from the CC, it is kept private and confidential. The law states that there are four exceptions to this general rule: a) you may request (by means of a signed release) that your therapist reveal information to other individuals or agencies of your choosing; b) in instances where there is imminent danger of serious harm to yourself or others, a therapist may reveal that information to prevent harm; c) in cases involving physical and/or sexual abuse of children or endangered adults, the therapist must report such abuse; and d) where requested by subpoena or mandated by court order or state/federal law.
