Increased Violence against AAPI Individuals

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in the United States, there have been dramatic increases in the amount of hate and violence directed at people of Asian descent (AAPI). The Counseling Center stands against hate and violence in any form and we want to affirm that we support all AAPI students. Below are some resources to help you navigate the emotions you may be feeling during these troubling times. We are always here if you need to process these emotions, talk about your feelings, or need additional resources.
