Lewis University Counseling Services honors the diversity of our student community and celebrates all cultures and perspectives. Staff counselors acknowledge the existence of the pain and trauma of racism present in our society. Our team promotes care and equity in the Lewis community. We are committed to creating a safe space to promote hope, healing, and empowerment. Services focus is on overall mental health and well-being through strength-based, culturally sensitive counseling, education, support, consultation, connection to resources, and advocacy.
