Statement and Support from the Counseling Center
While many express current feelings of relief from the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial, the Counseling Center recognizes that one verdict does not change decades and centuries of oppression. We know many have a range of feelings that come from personal experiences with systemic racism, violence, multigenerational racial trauma, and the weathering effects of microaggressions that can occur daily. The recent deaths of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo, violence in the Sikh community in Indianapolis, and violence toward Asian Americans weigh heavily, particularly on students of color.
The Counseling and Psychological Services Center is available now and through the summer to support our students. Individual Counseling through telemental health continues to be an option through the summer if you will be living in NC, or we can help you connect with a counselor in your community. We currently have a Support Group for Students of Color – please let us know if you are interested in this group during the summer (Feel free to contact Dr. Gayatri Titus at email@example.com with interest or questions about the group).
Students are eligible for counseling during the summer if:
You are enrolled in at least one of the summer sessions
You were enrolled in the most recent spring semester and you are enrolled in the upcoming fall semester.
