Mission and Philosophy Statement

The Counseling Center at Rider University believes that education includes the development of the total person and not intellect alone. The Counseling Center provides services that are central to the overall mission of the university. These services help students achieve educational and career goals, learn the process of problem solving, increase and enhance their capacity to develop satisfying interpersonal relationships and make full use of their potential for continued growth outside of their educational experience.

Thus, the mission of the Counseling Center is to provide services of a developmental, remedial, and preventive nature. These services focus on enhancing skills that students already possess while they encourage the development of skills that will help students achieve success at Rider University and beyond.

We strive to offer these services in an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable for all students, regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or physical status.
