University Counseling and Testing Center Mission
The UCTC contributes to the UO's mission through the development of the whole person. Our department seeks to integrate psychological and intellectual growth to facilitate student success in the classroom and beyond.
The Counseling and Testing Center as a Multicultural Organization
The Counseling & Testing Center affirms, honors, respects, and celebrates diversity in the broadest sense including age, body size/shape, differing abilities, gender, ethnicity, nationality, outward appearance, political ideology, race, religious/spiritual beliefs, sexual/affectual orientation, and socioeconomic class. We are devoted to confronting discrimination, oppression and prejudice in all of their many forms. As we work toward a more inclusive university community, we strive for the preservation and protection of fundamental human rights.
We recognize the need to continually change ourselves and influence others to understand and promote multiculturalism. Therefore, the UCTC seeks to maintain an atmosphere of respect and trust which encourages both students and staff members the freedom, respect and safety to explore, challenge, and discuss their own beliefs, biases, values and behaviors. Together, we support our individual and collective growth as a multicultural agency with the knowledge that this ongoing process will allow us to embrace our differences and strengthen our community.
