Commitment to Inclusive Excellence

  • We, the Counseling Center staff, commit ourselves to an on-going learning process to be aware of and challenge our privilege in all its various forms such as white, male, heterosexual, religion, class or ability. We continually work to enhance our multicultural understanding and our ability to be effective allies to diverse communities on campus.
  • We accept that this requires our commitment to identify, confront, and challenge our biases, values, beliefs, perceptions and actions that may enact racism, sexism, heterosexism and other cultural oppressions.
  • We strive to be aware of and honor the life experiences and cultural identities of students, faculty and staff in all our services. The Counseling Center works with other university groups and departments to promote a safe and healthy campus climate that embraces diversity.

Confidentiality Information

The UW Oshkosh Counseling Center is required by state law and ethic standards to guarantee that everything a counseling client talks about with a counselor is held in strict confidence. This means that information shared by you during counseling will be kept within the confines of the Counseling Center and will not be shared with others (including parents, other family members, instructors, or other university officials) unless you give written authorization to release the information.

Exemptions to confidentiality are as follows:

  • Counselors with the Center routinely consult with one another about cases in order to provide the most effective service to students.
  • If you threaten to harm yourself or anyone else and we believe the threat is serious, we are obligated to take appropriate action to protect life. This may include arranging voluntary or involuntary hospitalization, notifying law enforcement authorities, university personnel, and/or notifying the emergency contact you have designated.
  • If we have reason to believe that you or someone you know is abusing or neglecting children or a vulnerable adult, we are required by law to report this to the appropriate state agency.
  • If you are involved in litigation and we receive a court order requesting records, we are required by law to comply.
