Mission, Vision, and Values


Our mission is to promote the intellectual and social-emotional development of students through counseling and teaching rooted in equity, diversity, and inclusion.


The Counseling Center emphasizes:

  1. Commitment to student success
  2. Student resiliency, growth, and healing
  3. Cultivating partnerships with the campus community through outreach and consultation services
  4. Building a sense of community through culturally responsive counseling


In support of Seattle Central College’s values of equity, diversity, and inclusion, we at the Counseling Center honor the intersecting identities and characteristics that make us unique individuals. We recognize and acknowledge the impact of oppression, power, and privilege on students’ social-emotional development. We strive to create a trusting environment and a space where people feel safe. Our commitment to our campus community is to embrace and celebrate diversity in all its richness.
