We built Tierra Nueva (New Earth) Counseling Center on our campus, on the south side of Santa Fe. It is a gorgeous building, with twelve therapy rooms, two classrooms, and office/work space for the staff. It’a been a long-time coming. Since 1986, Southwestern College students have provided affordable counseling to the community from a holistic mental health-care perspective through their Practicum and Internship experiences.
You can Read about The Wild History of the SWC Counseling Center in this blog by President Jim Nolan. But suffice to say that the purchase of the land and decision to build rather than rent a place for the counseling center was synchronistic and Divinely guided. None-the-less, we have taken a mortgage to fund this expansion.
