The Counseling Center staff considers issues of student privacy to be of utmost importance. All interviews and services are strictly confidential. We will not release information about a student--or even acknowledge whether a student is being seen--without that student's written consent. Although there are specific exceptions to confidentiality under Massachusetts law (e.g., when individuals present a danger to themselves or others), these exceptions are rare.
The Counseling Center staff wants students to feel good about their counseling experience. We expect students to work closely with their counselors to set goals and to determine the focus and course of their treatment.
