Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The UNC Charlotte Center for Counseling and Psychological Services aspires to create an affirming, accessible, and safe environment that celebrates human diversity. We understand diversity to include but not be limited to: race, ethnicity, gender identify and expression, sexual identity, sex, age, socio-economic status, religion, ability, nationality, and language. We are dedicated to social justice through increased awareness of the effects of oppression, prejudice, and discrimination.


Statement on anti-Muslim, vulgar poster in Wallis Hall

In light of a recent Islamaphobic poster depicting sexual violence that was displayed in an on-campus residence hall, the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services wishes to reaffirm our support and commitment to all Muslim students and survivors of sexual trauma at UNC Charlotte and everyone else who has been impacted by this act. The staff at CAPS calls upon students, faculty, and staff to support one another against the perpetuation and minimization of sexual violence, xenophobia, racism, and Islamaphobia. We are here to support students who have been directly or indirectly impacted. Students who wish to access our services can contact CAPS at 704-687-0311 to schedule an appointment.

 


Negotiating a complex world

Amid these turbulent political times, the UNC Charlotte Center for Counseling and Psychological Services affirms its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. CAPS, through its work with individual students and in its outreach to the University community, aspires to create an affirming, accessible, and safe environment that celebrates human diversity. We understand diversity to include but not be limited to: race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual identity, sex, age, socio-economic status, religion, ability, nationality, and language. We are dedicated to social justice through increased awareness of the effects of oppression, prejudice, and discrimination.

We recognize that local, national, and international events can have a significant impact on many members of our campus community. For some, the impact is direct and personal. For many others, the divisive climate is disturbing and provocative. It is our mission to assist all members of the UNC Charlotte community to thrive academically, personally, and interpersonally, which can only be accomplished when every member of our community feels safe and secure. Your perspectives, experiences, values, and identities will be welcome at the CAPS, and we hope you will reach out to us if you need assistance. For more information about how to stay safe and productive in turbulent times, please visit the "Negotiating a complex world" section of this website.
