Diversity, Inclusion and Social Justice

We see you. We hear you. We support you.

The Office of Student Mental Health and Wellness is committed to equity, inclusion, and social justice across the diverse student population we work with. We must work to acknowledge and examine the variety of lenses through which we view ourselves and each other, including racial identity, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic resources, age, culture, language, body type, family configuration, belief systems, ability, and learning differences. We believe that open, honest, challenging conversations should be embraced and encouraged amongst students and staff. 

Resources included here are not meant to exclude any group, but to address, educate and aid in the coping of injustices brought upon oppressed populations. These lists are living documents and by no means exhaustive, please reach out if you have resources, you feel should be included. 

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." —Martin Luther King Jr.
