If you’re struggling in any way whatsoever, there's someone on campus who can help.

Student Health Center

Counseling Center

A unique aspect of our counseling services is our Comfort Dog Ministry! Spend some time with Zoey or Sage to refocus, relax, or re-energize yourself.

Life Coaches

Intentionally serving our diverse student groups through clarifying goals and identifying obstacles and problematic behaviors to create action plans to achieve desired results.

A Life Coach works with students on a range of professional and personal issues, but it is distinct from counseling. Life coaches help you with improving performance, developing your potential, solution finding, and goal setting. A life coach can help you recognize where you’re stuck and identify what needs to change to achieve your goals. 

If you need a life coach, learn more about requesting one here.

Campus support teams:

Substance abuse prevention:

Concordia Universities Campus Safety Office is committed to maintaining a drug-free campus. The abuse of alcohol and drugs can have a dramatic impact on professional, academic, and family life. The University, therefore, encourages members of the community who may be experiencing difficulty with drugs or alcohol to seek help.

Students are encouraged to contact the Student Wellness Office at 262-243-2244 or via email at StudentWellness@cuw.edu for assistance if struggling with substance abuse.

Opioid Overdose Prevention

In recognizing that opioid use and the associated risk of overdose due to opioid use continues to rise regionally, Naloxone (Narcan) is available throughout the campus. Each AED cabinet on campus contains a two pack of Narcan nasal spray. Narcan is also available in the Campus Safety Office (Rincker 23) and the Student Health Center (Albrecht 113).

Off campus resources for substance abuse services:

If you are interested in learning how to respond to an opioid overdose, please reach out to Student Wellness for free training opportunities or visit for community resources and free Narcan discretely mailed to you at no cost.

Start Your Recovery

provides helpful information for people who are dealing with substance use issues — and their family members, friends, and co-workers, too. Their goal is to offer people who are dealing with substance use issues a single source of reputable, objective information about signs, symptoms, conditions, , and resources — presented in a user-friendly format and in language that’s easy to understand.

Do not hesitate to reach out to ʰФ Student Wellness intake/triage coordinators to help navigate finding confidential, support for substance misuse through campus and community resources.

Locking Prescription Bottles

Students in need of a secure means to store prescription medication while living on campus may request a locking prescription pill bottle from the Campus Safety Office (Rincker 023) or Student Health Center (Albrecht 113).

These locking prescription bottles allow the student to choose a four-digit combination for the bottle cover. Once the combination is set, you can then insert your original prescription bottle into the locking bottle to keep your medication safe.

Medication Drop Box

Students experiencing a mental health crisis that do not feel safe being left with their prescription medication can come to the Campus Safety Office and drop the medication in a locking storage box. The Student Health Center nurse manager is the only person on campus who can retrieve the medication once deposited in the lock box. Students utilizing the medication drop box should keep the prescribed dose of their mediations for no more than 48 hours. If they haven’t been already, students will be connected to the Student Wellness office to schedule an appointment with a counselor or to see a provider in the Health Center. After meeting with a provider and when the student is no longer in crisis, the Health Center manager can return the medication to the student.
