New York City Campus
The Counseling Center at Pace University's New York City campus offers four undergraduate psychology summer internship positions. The goal of the training program is to provide summer interns with the opportunity to experience, under supervision, the diverse functions of a professional psychologist in a university counseling center. These functions include scholarly research, outreach and consultation program development, and limited clinical work.
Pace University is a comprehensive, independent, diverse institution. It was founded in 1906 by Homer and Charles Pace as a school of accountancy. Pace Institute gained college accreditation in 1948 and university status in 1973. The University is comprised of six schools offering over 100 undergraduate, graduate and professional programs. The overall University enrollment is about 15,000 students, 8,000 of them at the New York City campus. Pace is a multi-campus institution with sites in White Plains, Pleasantville, Briarcliff, Midtown Manhattan, and lower Manhattan. The summer internship training program is offered at the New York City campus in lower Manhattan.
Pace holds to a philosophy that each individual student is at the center of the institution's responsibilities: that he or she is unique, and that whatever students have in common with each other, they have in varying proportions and in different ways. Accordingly, students can expect the University to provide them with opportunities to realize their full potential and to help them earn respect as adults.
The student population is culturally diverse. Many of our students are from minority groups and there are a large number of students from foreign countries as well. The age range of our population is from 17 to 60.
The New York City campus encompasses an extensive array of facilities, including a residence tower, The Schimmel Theater of the Arts, a radio station, a library and a state of the art technology center.
The New York City campus in lower Manhattan is located immediately next to City Hall Park and the Municipal Building. The University is within easy walking distance of the South Street Seaport, Chinatown, Little Italy, Wall Street, and the New York financial district. It is easily accessible by all forms of public transportation.
The Counseling Center
The philosophy of the Counseling Center is in keeping with that of Pace University: that each student is unique. The major responsibility of the Counseling Center is to help students realize their fullest potential for growth and development. To that end, we offer a wide range of services and programs. These include:
Individual and Group Counseling and Psychotherapy
Individual and group therapy services are offered to help students deal with personal, vocational and educational problems. Personal development workshops are also offered.
Outreach and Consultation Services
Outreach and consultation services are offered to student groups, administrators and faculty to help ensure that the academic and social environments are conducive to student growth and development.
For example, we conduct training programs for residence hall staff, crisis intervention management programs, as well as major, university-wide programs on multiculturalism. We also participate in Student Services and Faculty Council meetings, and in programs geared toward freshman studies and student activities.
