Empowering students to be their best selves
The primary focus of the staff in the Center for Cura Personalis (CCP) is to support students through challenges, connect them to appropriate campus and community resources, promote growth in self-advocacy, and empower students to navigate toward their own solutions and shape their own lives. Case Managers work collaboratively across the institution to develop support plans that provide a caring and seamless student learning experience. Case Managers at Gonzaga operate in a non-clinical capacity and are not able to provide counseling or therapy to students, though will quickly connect students to the resources which will help.
“Cura personalis” means care for the whole person. We are dedicated to the mission of “cura personalis” as described 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.” With mind, body, and spirit in mind, we work and collaborate to support students holistically by connecting each individual with resources that will help them be successful in their time at Gonzaga University.
If you or someone you know may need some extra support, the Center for Cura Personalis is a great place to start!
