Confidentiality

The Center strongly believes in maintaining the trust of our students. Staff members remain committed to professional ethical standards, and abide by state and federal laws regarding confidentiality. In order to ensure the best care for a student, the professional staff of the Center, working as a treatment team, may consult with one another on cases.

Typical limits to confidentiality include cases where there appears to be a potential threat to self or others, cases involving child abuse, cases in which there is a signed judge’s subpoena requesting information, cases involving clinical consultation or supervision, and cases of public health matters when reports on contagion are required. Students desiring that information be released to other parties (including parents) must sign a Release of Information Form at the Center.


Staff

The staff is a multi-disciplinary treatment team of health and mental health professionals. Physicians, nurses, counselors and administrators are dedicated to serving our campus community. The Center also employs student workers to assist with clerical duties. Student workers have limited access to patient information. All staff members sign a confidentiality agreement upon employment.
