Campus Support Resources

A series of events in the past few weeks have tested our society: We have witnessed global terrorism, the deaths of black men at the hands of law enforcement officers, attacks on police officers, and the list goes on. We are saddened and recognize that there are no words we could offer to ease the hurt, frustration, and stirred emotions so many of us are experiencing.

During these times, it is imperative that we take care of ourselves. If you are feeling overwhelmed, please acknowledge these feelings and take active steps on your own behalf. Reach out to friends and family, turn off the news, turn away from social media sites, and seek activities that bring you joy and comfort.

As a campus community, we encourage you to support each other, stay connected, and access University support resources available to enrolled students, including the Center for Identity + Inclusion, Student Counseling Service, Spiritual LifeDean-on-Call, and staff throughout Campus and Student Life.
