Counseling Center

Towson University’s Counseling Center provides brief but comprehensive support services that promote the personal, social, and academic success of Towson University students. We help students learn to cope with the stresses of change and growth so that they can thrive during their college years and beyond.


Message From the Counseling Center

Recent Events

The Towson University Counseling Center stands in solidarity with all individuals and communities who have been directly or indirectly affected by the recent tragedies in El Paso, TX, Dayton, OH, and Gilroy, CA. We mourn with and send our deepest condolences to the loved ones of those who lost their lives and feel empathy for those who were injured during these tragic events.

We understand that the recurrence of violent events across different settings continues to evoke painful emotions and questions, and also may spark debates. We also recognize that some may experience desensitization because of how often these acts of violence continue to occur. We encourage the campus community to actively engage in self-care activities. This may include limiting exposure to media outlets and information that may be triggering and/or contribute to feelings of hopelessness, sadness, or anger.

As a center, we continue to strive for inclusion and believe that safety and well-being are human rights. We recognize the psychological and emotional impact that these events have on our community and are available by appointment and emergency services at 410-704-2512 for anyone seeking support during this challenging time.

Counseling Center Diversity Statement

The staff members of the Towson University Counseling Center strive to affirm, promote and celebrate diversity. We are committed to be aware of and understand diversity in its broadest sense.

The staff at the Counseling Center values the importance of diversity for all individuals. People from every background are affected by issues of culture. Multicultural competence is therefore an essential component of our work with every client.

We all benefit from an understanding of how power, privilege, cultural identities (e.g. gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, social class, and many others) and individual differences affect our daily experiences.

We recognize that students come to the center at various levels of comfort with these identities and therefore, make it a priority to meet students where they are. All of our lives are enhanced by a better understanding of the diverse world in which we live.
