Safe Space Training

The College recognizes the diverse identities that make up our community (inclusive of students, faculty, and staff).  Through this recognition and commitment to growth, the Career & Counseling Center began offering training opportunities and workshop events with an intention to foster a safer space for our students and staff by becoming allies (no matter of our own identity).

The Career & Counseling Center has trained counselors available to help. If you’re looking for long-term counseling, we can refer you to outside counselors or therapists who can meet your needs.

Suicide Prevention Committee

We recognize that family, work, or other responsibilities can get in the way of a student’s academic progress and that can lead to stress, difficulties, or mental health concerns. At times, these concerns become increasingly hard to navigate and may lead to feelings of distress, thoughts of self-harm, suicidal thoughts, attempts to kill oneself, or death by suicide. The College established the Suicide Prevention Committee in 2019. This committee has created a Suicide Prevention & Mental Health Communication Plan as well as programming and events to assist with identifying supports and resources, available to all students and employees.

Many of these counseling services are also available at our other College branches. For more information, please contact the Career and Counseling Center on the Marple Campus or the Student Services office at a campus near you.
