Please notify us 24 hours in advance, if possible, when you cannot attend a scheduled session.

Commitment to Diversity

The counseling center honors diversity by treating all members of the Whitworth community with respect and by intentionally considering the needs of underrepresented groups. We are dedicated to maintaining a welcoming and inclusive environment that recognizes the impact of stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, oppression and privilege. We demonstrate our commitment to multicultural practices through engagement in professional development and reflective supervision.

Eligibility

Full-time matriculated students are eligible to use the resources of the counseling center. Students completing a BSN through WSU’s College of Nursing are not eligible to receive services at the counseling center, but they can access counseling through WSU Spokane Counseling Services.
