Student Counseling & Support Services

Image Picker for Section 0

As our students begin their UD journey with us, we strive to offer them the support that is necessary for their success. College is a period of significant change, and students may feel overwhelmed as they encounter academic, social, and financial stressors.

Counseling & Support for AAP Students

The UD AAP Student Support Services Coordinator works to promote the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of students in the Associate in Arts Program. AAP students in need of assistance are encouraged to contact Student Support Services Coordinator Lawrence Livingston. Dr. Livingston is also an assistant professor of Africana Studies at the AAP's Wilmington campus, where he has taught since 2014.

In his role as Student Support Services Coordinator, Dr. Livingston serves as an advocate for all AAP students statewide, working to connect them with both local and University resources and providing a listening ear to help students navigate their college experience. To make an appointment, students can contact him directly at at or (302) 571-5395.

Dr. Livingston holds regular Zoom counseling hours on Mondays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. To connect with him, students may go to and join by entering meeting ID 423 546 4057. 

All Student Support Services meeting information and counseling discussions are confidential. However, students may notify their other professors that they are seeking counseling — only if they are comfortable doing so — as this will enable Dr. Livingston to coordinate with other faculty and staff to provide the student with additional help.

UD Helpline & COVID-19 Support

Students in need of immediate assistance should call the UD Helpline at (302) 831-1001. The UD Helpline is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for any UD student feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or otherwise in need of someone to talk to. 

Mental health counselors at the UD Center for Counseling and Student Development (CCSD) are available at (302) 831-2141 during business hours (M-F, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m). AAP students are eligible to receive one free triage session with a trained counselor who can help them determine what further resources they might need and where to find them.

CCSD also has useful advice to help students cope with the psychological stress associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. CCSD's COVID-19 Support page includes tips for managing anxiety and prioritizing self-care, as well as links to fun virtual activities that students can use to combat social isolation and safely connect with friends and family.
