A Message from the Counseling Center & Important Resources

These are very challenging times for all. As you know, the University suspended in-person classes due to COVID-19. If you have an urgent matter and are on campus, you may go to the Student Health Center who can reach our on-call psychologist. For all students, we are able to provide you with consultation by phone. To request a consultation, please leave a voicemail at 610-519-4050 and provide your name, phone number and the nature of your call. It is a confidential voicemail. If you’ve been seen at the Counseling Center before, also include the name of your psychologist on our staff. If you do not know their name, our record-keeping will indicate your psychologist and your psychologist can call you. The Counseling Center staff joins me in wishing you and your loved ones the best of health during this difficult time. Joan Whitney, Ph.D., Executive Director
