Student Counseling Center


Support for Students of Color

We aim to provide culturally sensitive treatment and promote awareness for issues encountered by students of color.

Students of color may experience unique challenges during their college experience. The everyday issues related to negotiating academic and personal responsibilities can be compounded by race-related stressors you may encounter both on and off campus. At the Student Counseling Center, we aim to provide culturally sensitive treatment and promote awareness for issues encountered by students of color. We hope you will find this resource list to be a good starting point for further discussion
