The UCC partners with Point Park University’s Clinical-Community Psychology doctoral program to provide quality mental health support to the student community and provide advanced training to doctoral students under the supervision of licensed faculty clinicians.

The UCC is attentive to issues of diversity and equality. We respect and value each person as a unique individual. We offer a safe and supportive space for students who identify as LGBTQ+ to navigate the challenges of exploring and integrating their gender and sexual identities.
