For months, we at the University Counseling Center have witnessed the impact of this
election on the mental health of our campus community. Now, in the aftermath, we reaffirm
our commitment to providing an accepting, compassionate, and supportive environment
for those we serve. We are keenly aware of the particular impact this election may
have on members of our community who have been impacted by sexual assault, or who
identify as people of color, undocumented, Muslim, immigrant, queer, or trans. If
you are feeling marginalized for any reason we want you to know that we are here,
and we are committed to providing a space where you can feel heard, seen, and supported.
As was offered on Wednesday in the Union Student Diversity Lounge, we will continue
to provide forums where people can meet for support both at the UUC and elsewhere
on campus. We will update you as those opportunities are scheduled. We encourage you
to practice self-care as we come together to care for our community.
