The Counseling Services Department, acting in line with the mission of SUNY Broome Community College, is committed to serving our students through counseling services and campus programming. We are steadfast in our goal of meeting the needs of a variety of people, including students of diverse racial, ethnic and national backgrounds, sexual/affectional orientations, gender identities, physical and mental abilities, languages, ages, religious/spiritual beliefs and socioeconomic backgrounds. The Counseling Services Department applies the skills of education and counseling with the highest degree of professional competence and commitment to facilitate the personal development of students, and to intervene in psychological crises at the College. In order to accomplish this mission, the Department provides a full range of confidential counseling services, including: personal counseling, crisis intervention, group counseling, and outreach programming.
Counseling Services offers supportive services to help you be successful in college and in life. We are committed to helping you resolve personal problems or concerns that interfere with academic achievement, and to helping you develop behaviors that enhance your decision making skills, increase self confidence, and enable you to meet future challenges.
Students often experience social, personal, and family concerns while attending college. When such concerns or other barriers to academic success arise, students may turn to one of our professionally trained counselors for help in regaining perspective and purpose. Through individual, confidential meetings, a Counselor can help you explore, understand, and deal with your unique personal issues and help you balance your personal, career, and educational goals.
Counselors also assist students in maintaining personal safety and mental well being while on campus as members of the CARE Team.
We encourage you to meet with a counselor early in your first semester—during a scheduled appointment or during walk-in hours—to help set you off on the best path to success for your time here at SUNY Broome and beyond.
Emergency and Crisis Counseling
In the event of a suicide attempt, alcohol or other drug overdose, or the threat of imminent violence on campus, students, faculty, or staff are advised to contact 911 via cell phone or 9-911 from a campus phone or from the Blue Light phones on campus. Off campus, call 911.
For situations involving a psychological crisis with no imminent threat of danger during normal business hours, contact Counseling Services at extension 5210 for immediate assistance. You can also escort a student to our offices in SS-210. A counselor will assess the level of risk for harm, assist the individual in achieving stability, and make appropriate treatment recommendations, as needed. For emergencies that require immediate attention please contact Public Safety at 911 or 9-911 from an on campus phone.
