Programming and Student Development

Programs that help you beat stress and make better choices

Our office is dedicated to the personal development and education of all Utica College students. Programming and informational materials are 2 of the tools we use to reach as many students as possible. It is our mission to offer you programs which will help to give you the knowledge and opportunity to grow and succeed both at UC and throughout your life.

We offer programs on topics such as:
  • stress management/relaxation tips
  • healthy relationships
  • making responsible choices in the college environment
  • how to have a difficult conversation with a friend or family member
  • how to go to a party or go out on a date safely 
  • ways to improve your concentration/develop stronger study habits
  • how to help a friend in need
  • tips on how to overcome social anxiety
  • career guidance/support surrounding job related stress 
... and much more!

Suggest a program

We are always looking for new ideas as well as input on what topics students are interested in exploring. If you have an idea for a program or feel that classmates or members of the UC community may benefit from learning more about a topic, let us know by emailing us at

Support to staff/faculty
Additionally, we are here to support staff/faculty learn ways to more effectively support, communicate and/or work with difficult or struggling students. 

Please contact Alison Franklin, Director of Counseling, for more information or to refer a student to our services.
