The staff of the Counseling & Psychological Services Center is committed to the valuing of diversity in all of its forms. All are welcome, respected, and appreciated here.
We live in a diverse world consisting of many groups of people who have been de-valued and discriminated against based on such characteristics as race, ethnicity, cultural background, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical and mental abilities, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic status. We believe that such prejudice and discrimination is detrimental to those who are targets, those who target, and the world in general.
