The Center for Guidance and Counseling (CGC) is an indispensable part of the academic community created to provide guidance and counseling services to students to facilitate their holistic development. In line with the vision and mission of Mapúa University, CGC aims to develop the total well-being of the students as individuals and as members of society.

CGC provides developmental counseling assisting students to become aware of the different forces and factors at work in their lives. Consequently, students are assisted towards achieving optimum level of personal happiness and social usefulness.

The concept of counseling in the University is essentially democratic. CGC offers school counseling that is program centered and outcomes based. CGC aims to answer the question “How are students different because of what the guidance counselors do?”

CGC also serves a supporting function to the Center for Student Advising by being helping improve students’ academic achievement.
