Counseling and Psychological Services is a division of Educational and Student Affairs. The division exists to help students function more effectively in the Drew University Community. Our Mission is to help students define their personal and academic goals. Information and counseling are provided to help students to deal with their individual concerns by helping them to understand themselves better and explore alternatives, reach decisions, or feel better about coping with problems.

We offer a broad range of group programs and individual counseling for undergraduate and graduate students. Our purpose is to assist students in their personal, social, and academic development, and the achievement of life goals. Services are provided free to all interested Drew students. Sometimes referrals are made to other, more appropriate, resources either within the university community, or outside the university.

Alumni/ae may consult a counselor for a brief consultation and/or referral. Staff and faculty will also be seen on a consulting basis. Referrals can be made for longer term counseling. We are located on the South end of Drew University’s campus in Holloway Annex 21 adjacent to the Health Center across from the University Commons.
