On Campus Support
Several campus offices provide support and can help you attain holistic (physical, emotional and spiritual) health.
Whether you’re interested in filing a report, seeking counseling, just want to talk or feel you need a medical professional, we have options for you.
- COUNSELING AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES
- Counseling and Psychological Services offers confidential individual or group counseling services free of charge to all degree-seeking Hope students. To schedule an appointment, call 616.395.7945.
- STRENGTH & EMPOWERMENT SURVIVOR SUPPORT GROUP
If you have experienced interpersonal violence (e.g., sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, childhood abuse), we invite you to consider joining a weekly support group. This group is mindful of the help and support survivors can provide for each other. They will support each member, creating an empowering environment where yous can learn new coping skills, share your story, be supported and work towards personal goals.If you are interested in participating in this support group, please call 616.395.7945 or come by the Counseling and Psychological Services in the DeWitt Center to schedule an appointment with the facilitators. Students can join group at any time during the academic year.
- HEALTH CENTER
The Hope Health Center can provide confidential service to any Hope student who is registered for the current semester as a degree-seeking student. Services provided include annual exams (pap testing), STD testing and assessment of injuries. (However, if you have been the victim of a sexual assault within the last 120 hours, you are encouraged to seek assistance from a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner off-campus.)
- CAMPUS MINISTRIES
- Campus chaplains will listen, discern and pray with you regardless of what is going on in your life. There is no issue, no circumstance, no question that they are not willing to engage. If you would like to set up an appointment, please contact a chaplain. Campus chaplains are confidential employees on campus.
- POLICY ADVISORS
Policy advisors are trained Hope College employees who are prepared to assist you from start to finish if you are going through our Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Policy investigation process. They can provide information about the policy and the process while also being by your side as you go through each step of the process. (Policy advisors are not confidential support persons, but instead are mandatory reporters if you inform them about incidents that have not yet been reported to the Title IX coordinator.)
