Mission:

The University Counseling Center strives for excellence in providing quality clinical, developmental, and preventive services within a supportive learning environment. Our services are designed to foster social, emotional, and personal development; encourage life-long learning; and help students identify and fulfill their personal and academic goals. Our clinical staff includes licensed professional counselors and psychologists with diverse backgrounds and training who are experienced in helping students with a variety of issues and concerns. We value diversity and strive to provide quality services that are sensitive to diversity of all kinds including age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, ability, sexual identity, and religion. We are committed to providing culturally sensitive services in a safe and inclusive environment for all students.

Our Commitment to Social Justice & Inclusion:

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. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have also seen a horrifying rise in anti-Asian racism across the United States. Numerous hate crimes and acts of violence have been committed against Asian and Asian American individuals and communities. We acknowledge the disproportionate discrimination and violence against communities of color as well as the disproportionate impact of COVID-19. Whether experienced directly or indirectly through media exposure, racism can be deeply disturbing, stressful, and traumatizing and elicit different emotions including anger, sadness, grief, anxiety, and numbness.

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 BIPOC 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.
