University Counseling

Welcome to W&L's University Counseling Center!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help promote and maintain the emotional well-being of W&L students and to serve as a resource to the entire campus community.

Vision Statement

Proactive health and well-being starts with mindful awareness of the self, and self-care is how we act on that awareness. In the spirit of making self-care a lifelong habit, we encourage daily spending time with family and friends, recharging, moving the body, consuming food and drink in moderation, savoring one's surroundings, mindfully attending to what gives one life, and attending to one's personal growth and development. When professional care is also needed, we are here to help. University Counseling operates out of a brief therapy/individualized care model that allows the most students to access our services, which range from less intensive to more intensive, depending upon need.

Message to Parents About Well-Being

College is an exciting time for students, but it can also be challenging. Washington and Lee University provides a number of services to assist with the emotional well-being of students while they meet those challenges.
