Drexel University Counseling Center (DUCC)

 

DUCC operates two sites, the largest of which is on the University City Campus.  Our second site, located on our Center City campus, is easily accessible via our university shuttle serviceThe staff at the DUCC value providing services that are inclusive to all of our students.  To translate these values into action we have an Internal Diversity Committee (IDC) that meets regularly to plan professional development activities for staff.  These activities aim to guide our team toward the goal of increasing self-awareness regarding our own biases and privilege as well as systemic bias and privilege in order to provide appropriate and effective mental health services.  Additionally, we have a thriving group program comprised of workshops, interpersonal process groups, and topic specific groups (e.g., women’s trauma, queer student group, mindful eating).  We are dedicated to continued growth of our group program and welcome new staff to join us in this effort.  DUCC also runs a robust training program with an APA accredited internship and externship program.  All staff members participate in the training program via direct supervision, intern/extern selection, and/or leading specific trainings or seminars.

 

Diversity Statement

We value fostering an inclusive academic community because we understand that different life experiences and perspectives are critical to the development of new ideas, analytical problem solving skills and overall student life satisfaction and achievement.  We transform these principles into practice by seeking individuals who have interest in working with students with multiple intersecting marginalized identities.  Because we seek to build a staff with a variety of backgrounds and experiences we encourage diverse candidates to apply, including (but not limited to) people of color, individuals with disabilities, women, and veterans. We welcome applicants who will help us advance our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives aimed at creating an academic environment that values community engagement around these issues.
