Center for Cura Personalis (CCP)

“Helping students be their best selves”

The Center for Cura Personalis (CCP) is an innovative department within the Division of Student Development that focuses on providing individualized services and support that help students be their best selves. “Cura personalis” means care for the whole person.  CCP staff are dedicated to the mission of “cura personalis” as eloquently laid out by Peter-Hans Kolvenbach SJ, Jesuit superior, when he said that along each of our life journeys, we need the “help of a companion on the way.”  CCP staff aim to be this companion.

The CCP serves students in many ways including through proactive outreach and educational programs about healthy choices, interventions for students who may been struggling, referrals to on and off campus resources, and designated case managers to provide support for students who may need a little extra assistance along the way.  The goal of the CCP is to find numerous ways to provide healthy living and prevention education so that students never find themselves in crisis, but if they do, we are here to help.  Below you will find a little bit more about the functional areas within the CCP.  To go more in depth about or staff, values, or the functional areas, click on the links on the left-hand menu bar.
