For Counseling and Legal Services

Many people face complex legal, psychological and social issues, and lack the resources to pay for the professional services they need.  The  IPC at the University of St. Thomas has been a trusted resource for over 20 years to meet the needs of our community while providing outstanding training for students.  Working collaboratively, students from the School of Law and the Morrison Family College of Health’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology and School of Social Work strive to meet the needs of underserved people as our students gain valuable real-world experience in their chosen fields of study.
