Wellbeing & Counseling Center

Our Mission

The Wellbeing and Counseling Center supports student development and success by providing a good first point of contact for students who want to talk to someone about solutions to their wellbeing and mental health concerns.

We envision a Rice community in which all persons develop and thrive as individuals; and who strive to create a community of care, respect and integrity for all.

Should you like to speak to someone, but are unsure who you need to talk to, please feel free to drop in during walk-in hours and we will make sure you are matched with the Office that best meets your needs.
