Care and Support

TALK TO SOMEONE!

We, the Campus Ministry staff and leadership at UD, would love to meet with you. No matter the topic, we are eager to hear what’s on your mind as a student here! It could be anything from relationships, sadness, doubt, anger, forgiveness, sin, to simply wanting encouragement . . . and any else in between! No matter what’s on your mind or what you are facing, we too often fall for the lie that we are the only ones who feel that way or struggle. The first step is to know that you are not alone and to talk to someone.

If you would like to set up an appointment to talk with one of the staff of Campus Ministry, please email us at UDMinistry@dbq.edu so that we can find a time to meet. Or reach out through our Contact Us page. If you are in need to talk to someone immediately, click here for Counseling Services and the multiple phone numbers you can call for help right away.

Being Supported at UD
The first step in experiencing support and care on a regular basis is to experience genuine fellowship and friendship. That is all the more reason to get involved in Campus Ministry. In worship, we are reminded of the truth and love of God. In fellowship, we can know one another in ways that allow for encouragement, growth, and maturity. All of us will experience times of doubts, suffering, or struggles. But it is our time and experience in community with others that helps prepare us for such times, and during such times, community reminds us that we are not alone.

Beyond Campus Ministry
Besides meeting with Campus Ministry staff, the Office of Counseling and Life Services provides counseling on campus and can make referrals off campus. If you are living on campus, the staff of Residence Life is here to help, so be in contact with your Resident Advisor and your Hall Director. For academics, get the help you need from the Academic Support & Success Center.

Off-campus services include resources on sexual health, men’s issues, and abuse & sexual assault. See the Counseling and Life Services page for a list of other off-campus resources.
