MISSION

The Elmira College Office of Counseling Services offers full-time students confidential mental health counseling to support personal development and academic success. Counselors help students accomplish personal, academic and career goals. Counseling enables students to overcome barriers to learning such as mental illness, challenging issues, confusion and indecision. Through counseling students acquire behavior, skills, attitudes and resources necessary for: 1) success during college and 2) a lifetime of productivity, personal growth and responsible citizenship.
