Rooted in a commitment to culturally competent and evidence-based practices, the Marquette University Counseling Center (MUCC) addresses the needs of students and consults with faculty and staff in order to promote psychological health among Marquette undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and enhance the well-being of the Marquette community.  Marquette students seek MUCC’s services for a variety of reasons, including career concerns, transition issues, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating/body image issues, trauma/sexual assault, alcohol/substance abuse issues, and interpersonal issues, among others.  MUCC offers campus delivery of mental health services in the form of individual and group counseling, psychiatric services, and crisis services.  MUCC emphasizes being a visible presence on campus and builds partnerships with the campus community through outreach and consultation services. 


MUCC contributes to the development of mental health professionals through training opportunities to advanced doctoral students and post-doctoral residents.  Because MUCC provides time-limited clinical services, training is focused on providing therapeutic interventions within a brief therapy model.
