In responding to the COVID-19 outbreak, the University Counseling Center (UCC) will continue to support the emotional well being of students while also observing federal and state recommendations for social distancing.
Beginning Thursday, March 19 the UCC will move to a telecounseling platform for services described below.
*Telecounseling will be delivered through the Zoom platform whenever possible, but may also include some telephone calls depending on technology available to students and/or staff.
*Individual service options will be evolving and may be primarily brief single support sessions. We are striving to be adaptable to serve students, within the limitations of telservices and staffing availability.
*The UCC will message students about any already scheduled appointments to give further information about telecounseling.
*Staff will respond to urgent and emergent needs via same-day teleservice, with emergencies triaged to determine what is the appropriate level of care.
*After hours support will still be available through the main counseling number.
*For assistance during regular hours and after-hours, please call the UCC main number at 607-777-2772.
*For emergency assistance call 911, or your local hospital, or see the Emergencies page on our website for other resources..
*Groups and workshops are suspended until further notice.
