The Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH) is here for you. CCPH recognizes the traumatic impact of chronic racialized violence and condemns the recent events of use of excessive force and abuse of power by law enforcement. These tragic events profoundly impact our campus community. It is imperative that we all do our part in identifying and interrogating racism and oppression of all kinds. CCPH holds firm to the university’s values and commitment to stand up against racism and hate in all its forms. We are here to help students navigate through these times.
