General Resources


Becoming a more diverse and inclusive community requires each of us to be partners in fostering real and lasting change.


Project Implicit

Project Implicit is a non-profit organization and international collaboration between researchers who are interested in implicit social cognition - thoughts and feelings outside of conscious awareness and control. The goal of the organization is to educate the public about hidden biases and to provide a “virtual laboratory” for collecting data on the Internet.


Counseling Services

Counseling Services strives to meet the psychological needs of students by providing a safe, supportive and confidential environment that promotes self-awareness, fosters responsibility and respect, and teaches effective coping strategies. The office is committed to improving the quality of life on campus and supporting the college’s academic mission. Counseling Services values persons of diverse racial, national, or cultural backgrounds; sexual/affectional orientations; mental and physical abilities; languages; socio-economic classes; ages; genders; and religious/spiritual beliefs.

Contact Counseling Services at 832-6574.


Volunteer and Community Service Center (VCSC)

VCSC encourages advocacy, service and learning on the Lawrence campus, connecting Lawrentians to needs in the surrounding community, creating an environment of mutual learning and growth, while providing service to local organizations and individuals. Working collaboratively with the community, we aim to create engaged citizens by building relationships, establishing partnerships, and providing meaningful service.

Accessibility Services

Lawrence University is committed to providing opportunities for all students to succeed academically. Because courses vary in their required activities (discussion, lab, performance, etc.), Lawrence works with eligible students to determine reasonable accommodations for each course or other academic requirement. Arrangements are made through the Center for Academic Success. For information about the process, see the pages on Accommodations Overview, Establishing Eligibility, and Requesting Accommodations. Then meet with the Accessibility Services Coordinator to discuss your particular needs.


SHARE - Sexual Harassment and Assault Resources & Education

Lawrence welcomes everyone who shares our mission of liberal learning and our value of respect for one another. Students, faculty, staff and visitors have the right to participate in our community without discrimination based on sex, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation, and to live and learn in an environment free from sexual violence.
