Summer 2020 Services

Page address:

The Counseling Center is deeply saddened and angered by the horrific injustice of the death of George Floyd. Our hearts go out to his loved ones as well as the Black community and we stand united with those calling for justice and accountability.  We are available for MSU students who need a safe place to talk or get connected with resources; please contact us at or 507-389-1455. 



The Counseling Center stands in support of communities of color:  “As you take steps to protect your health and that of others, keep in mind that we are fighting a virus, not members of our communities. Discrimination, stereotypes, xenophobia, and racism remain as harmful to our campus and local communities as before the emergence of COVID-19.”
