Resources for BIPOC Students

The Carruth Center is available to assist BIPOC students and their allies. We provide a range of services to support their personal and professional endeavors with the goal of promoting well-being in all aspects of their lives.

BIPOC students may experience difficulties such as:

  • Managing Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Racial Trauma and Stress
  • Academic demands
  • Periods of sadness
  • Substance abuse 
  • Relationship problems
  • Social problems
  • Coping with harassment or discrimination
  • Identity development (including racial identity)

BIPOC Services at Carruth:

We offer a variety of services to address these and other difficulties. We encourage you to reach out to make an initial appointment to discuss with a counselor areas where you may be struggling and how we can assist you. Be sure to review the options for  Group Counseling, which offers an BIPOC support group each semester.  

These resources are offered to help support the needs of our students who identify as part of the Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities.
