Message from the President
Community engagement is part of our core mission at West Chester University. Engagement at WCU takes many different forms, including public service by our students; cultural events and programming open to the community; and a wide range of mutually beneficial partnerships with area organizations.

I am very proud of one of our newest engagement initiatives, the Community Mental Health Clinic, which opened last August in Wayne Hall.  (Wayne may have been a residence hall during your time on campus but it now houses classrooms and offices, as well as the clinic.)

When we opened the Community Mental Health Clinic last August, interest was high right from the start. The clinic offers a variety of services, from individual, couples and family counseling to neuropsychological testing. Services are offered on a sliding scale, some clients pay $10 a visit or even less.
