Student Development & Counseling Center

 

In order to restrict person-to-person contact in light of the COVID-19 virus, the Student Development & Counseling Center (SDCC) has shifted to offering remote services to students rather than face-to-face sessions. Students seeking services can contact the office at 508-831-5540 or sdcc@wpi.edu to start the process of getting connected remotely with a counselor for an initial consultation and recommendations for ongoing support. The SDCC will continue to provide consultation to students, faculty and staff who have concerns about a student's mental and emotional well-being. Consultation can be accessed with the same contact information listed above. From afar, the SDCC remains committed to the well-being of our WPI students.

 

Additionally, Clark University's Counseling Center has developed a wonderful "Mental Health Toolbox" with a library of resources to help empower people. Please click the link and check it out for more tools to support your (or your loved one's) mental health!

The Student Development & Counseling Center (SDCC) is dedicated to promoting the safety, emotional health, and personal growth of all WPI students, as well as to cultivating a supportive campus.

The SDCC offers free, confidential mental health counseling and consultation services for individuals, couples, and groups, as well as crisis intervention and referrals to local specialists as necessary. Without exception, each student will be treated with compassion and respect, and counselors will work with them to set goals, identify obstacles, and move in a valued direction.

Additionally, the SDCC hosts trainings, workshops, and presentations that are designed to foster personal growth and skills for success.

Students interested in learning more about the SDCC and its services are encouraged to email us, call us at 508-831-5540, or visit us during our operating hours. The SDCC strives to provide meaningful care focused on students' immediate needs, and has a range of follow-up options available based each unique situation. Unless otherwise arranged, students schedule appointments by calling on the day they would like to be seen. Students can call to arrange these same-day appointments starting at 8:30 AM ET. During these scheduled appointments, the clinician will focus on clarifying and working on goals for treatment, then they will make a recommendation about next steps (following up as-needed, joining a group, helping students connect with specialists in the area, etc.). The main office is located at #16 Einhorn Road. We are open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 am-7:00 pm and Friday from 8:00 am-5:00 pm each day while students are in session. Our summer hours are 8:00 am-4:30 pm.
