Support Spaces 

  • Cafe for Womxn of Color is a brave space for those who experience the intersections of gender-based oppression and/or ethnic-based oppression. Cafe for Womxn of Color is a series in collaboration between the Center for Intercultural Relations and the Women's Resource Center.

  • Men of Color Empowerment Group is a student-focused collective for men and non-binary students of color that come together to talk about topics such as masculinity, gender, racial justice, inequities in higher education, and more.

  • Talk It Out is a drop-in service that provides students with easy access to informal and confidential consultation with counselors from Counseling and Psychological Services (C&PS). Although Talk It Out counselors are professionals, it is not a substitute for therapy and does not constitute mental health treatment. The purpose of Talk It Out is to speak with counselors about your concerns, get help with problem solving, and ask any questions you may have about therapy or C&PS. Talk It Out counselors can also guide you through the process of setting up an appointment at C&PS or discuss potential resources both on and off campus.
