A Commitment to Ongoing Improvement

The Student Development & Counseling Center (SDCC) is committed to pursuing ongoing professional development and sharing our successes with colleagues. We demonstrate this commitment in a variety of ways, including:

Student Support Network. (SSN) This highly successful program is available to other colleges and universities. WPI provides training materials and services are available to help implement a Student Support Network on your campus.

Professional peer development. SDCC staff members attend and give presentations at major conferences to further their own knowledge and to contribute to the field of college counseling.

Professional in-service training. The SDCC regularly welcomes outside professionals to share information about their areas of expertise, such as eating disorders, treating students with psychotic symptoms, and Asperger’s syndrome.
