Bureau of Study Counsel

The undergraduate and graduate student years are times of intense growth and development - intellectually, emotionally, and interpersonally. During these years, students develop their capacities for critical and creative thinking, explore relationships and sexuality, develop a sense of authority and agency, and search for a sense of meaningful and enlivening engagement in the world. While being a student can be exciting and rewarding, it can also be stressful. Students often encounter challenges that test the limits of their current understandings and coping strategies. The Bureau can help students draw upon their existing strengths and develop new ones in their efforts to live a life that feels true to the whole of who they are and honors what matters to them in life.
