University Counseling Center

Anti-Racism Statement

The University Counseling Center (UCC) grieves the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Rayshard Brooks, Elijah McClain and the countless other Black lives lost due to race-based violence and police brutality.   We acknowledge the disproportionate discrimination and violence against Black communities, and the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 in communities of color.    

In this critical time when there is so much pain, anger, and sadness; we are joining the call for collective responsibility and accountability to support our communities of color in healing from this trauma and taking steps towards meaningful change.   To our Black and African American students and colleagues:  We see your pain and believe you when you say that you are being hurt and oppressed by the systemic racism that exists throughout higher education and our country.   We recognize that minority stress and race-based trauma are real and that you experience them daily.   We know that it is not enough to make statements of support.  Action and prevention are needed.   We want to do better and must do better in our role as aspiring allies.   We are committed to educating ourselves, being mindful of the impact of our behavior, listening non-defensively to your feedback, examining how we can improve our services and resources to better support students of color, and collaborating with other TAMU-CC groups and departments to be part of the change that is needed.  

The UCC has and will remain committed to providing culturally sensitive services in a safe and inclusive environment for all students.   Students, if you or someone you know would like support now, or in the future, please call us at (361)825-2703.   If you would prefer to connect to a counselor of color on-line or in the community, we can also provide you with referrals and additional resources.
