A message from the staff of Counseling, Health, and Wellness Services

The staff of Counseling, Health, and Wellness Services bears witness to the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, and the systems of oppression and racism that led to their murder and the murders of countless Black individuals. We see the violence directed toward African Americans and other people of color and, as health and wellness practitioners, we say this: Black Lives Matter. There can be no health without justice. 

For students impacted by the fury and grief of this moment, we are here for you. We are here to listen, to advocate for what is right, and to remain humble in the process. We recognize that actions speak louder than words and want our actions to reflect our commitment to inclusion, a sense of safety, and supporting Black student wellness.
