Since being founded in 1887, Whittier College has been a place of academic innovation, where a community of learners pushes past constraints and “measured” ways of doing things, embracing the bold and the cutting edge. With a new approach to student life, “Whittier Innovates…Wellness” is pushing us to discover and create new approaches to equitable health for students. Located on 75 acres in the heart of Southern California between bustling Los Angeles and beautiful Orange County, Whittier is distinguished by its small size, pioneering faculty, and nationally recognized curriculum. Facilities rival those at large public institutions, but this is an intimate setting where students and professors unite in an ongoing pursuit of knowledge.  Currently, Whittier College holds the HSI credential and is a minority-majority school with approximately 70% of the student population identifying as students of color and nearly 70% are first generation college students. 

Through counseling and supportive services, the Whittier College Student Counseling Center equips students to thrive by developing and encouraging mental and emotional health, with approximately 20% of the student body utilizing our hybrid, no-cost, short-term counseling services. Clinical hours are spent predominantly in individual counseling; however, the following are also a part of the training experience: intake assessment, crisis intervention (walk-ins and on-call), group and/or couples counseling, triage and consultation. Concussion protocols, mental health screeners and service consultations are provided to student athletes.

In addition, the post-doctoral fellow will play a vital role in the training practicum students. They will provide weekly tape review and consultation and teach several didactic training seminars to the staff. In addition, the Fellow will participate in affinity-based and identity-conscious program development, workshops, classroom presentations/lectures and special projects as they arise. The Counseling Center collaborates with a variety of departments on campus and provides consultation to the Student Life and Residential Life teams. There is also the opportunity to provide brief consultations to students in informal settings, such as the residence hall, following Cornell University’s “Let’s Talk” program. One of the assigned duties of the post-doctoral fellow is acting as outreach coordinator for the WCSCC and serving as a leader in the CC outreach events. The fellow will serve as the contact person for all campus outreach requests and will also coordinate the provision of campus outreach by leading a weekly outreach consultation meeting with counseling center staff, oversee the writing of a weekly psychoeducational bulletin, and maintaining an accurate record of all CC outreach hours. 

Additional duties as assigned.
