Wellness Office Privacy and Information Sharing

Because much of the information students may share with the Counseling and Wellness Center is of a sensitive nature (medical information, disability status, etc.), staff will make every effort to keep this information private and share it with other staff and faculty on a need-to know basis only. However, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. In the case of disability status and accommodations, information will only be shared with those faculty and staff designated by the student. If a student is judged to be a danger to self and/or others, we reserve the right to inform parents, next-of-kin, emergency providers or appropriate college personnel.

Should you have questions about privacy, please consult Nicole Bihler, Director of Wellness Services for more information.
