TUCC's Statements of Support
Statement in Support of Students Impacted By Campus Events This Fall
At this point in the semester, students are contending with midterms, exams, and heavy
academic workloads. This year, these stressors follow closely on the heels of a string
of incidents on and near campus that might have undermined a sense of safety for many
students. While these events may have been isolated incidents, we acknowledge that
they can evoke painful emotions, questions, and may even spark debates about topics
such as safety and how to belong on campus. We also recognize that continuous stressors
can take a toll on students' emotional stability and well-being. In the aftermath
of experiencing or witnessing trauma or a series of traumatic events, it is normal
to experience a wide range of feelings such as shock, fear, helplessness, anger, or
sadness. The Counseling Center sees you. We hear you, and we are here to support you
as the term presses on.
As a Center, we are committed to affirming and providing care for all students who
have been directly or vicariously impacted by the series of incidents on and near
campus. We continue to strive for inclusion and believe that safety and wellbeing
are basic human rights. As such, we are available for "same-day" appointments Mondays
through Fridays, at 410-704-2512 for any student seeking support during this stressful
and challenging time.
Statement of Support to Asian/Asian American Communities
There has been an alarming increase recently in the number of assaults and hate crimes
against the Asian American communities. The rise of anti-Asian racism reminds us of
the ongoing history of race-based discrimination that serves to distract and divide
our communities. TUCC’s commitment to anti-racism in all its forms – racism against
Asian, Black, LatinX, Native American, and other communities – demands that we stand
up and speak out. We strongly condemn this violence. We stand in solidarity with
all members of our community who experience marginalization and threat based on any
aspect of their identity.
We at the Counseling Center are committed to providing support for all students who
are struggling during this difficult and frightening time.
Coping with Anti-Asian Racism:
Advocacy for Anti-Asian Racism:
Counseling Center Reaffirmation of Solidarity and Support for Black Members of our
The Counseling Center grieves with the rest of the Towson University community regarding
the racially motivated violence that has continued to occur across our country. These
tragedies, along with voter suppression and racial terrorism, reflect a longstanding
and entrenched history of structural and systemic injustice that we condemn and are
dedicated to addressing. We also recognize that these tragedies may be especially
injurious to members of our Black and African American community. The debilitating
psychological effects of centuries of racial oppression cannot be underestimated.
Furthermore, these ongoing tragedies only compound the stress of dealing with the
COVID-19 pandemic and its particularly traumatic impact on communities of color. We
are here to support our Towson family whose members may be coping with feelings of
grief, rage, fear, helplessness, depression, sadness, and guilt. We encourage you
to contact our office if you (or someone you know) would like support with coping
and healing. We see you and we are here for you.
With love, solidarity, and support,
The Counseling Center Staff

Counseling Center Diversity Statement
The staff members of the Towson University Counseling Center strive to affirm, promote
and celebrate diversity. We are committed to be aware of and understand diversity
in its broadest sense.
The staff at the Counseling Center values the importance of diversity for all individuals.
People from every background are affected by issues of culture. Multicultural competence is therefore an essential
component of our work with every client.
We all benefit from an understanding of how power, privilege, cultural identities
(e.g. gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality,
social class, and many others) and individual differences affect our daily experiences.
We recognize that students come to the center at various levels of comfort with these
identities and therefore, make it a priority to meet students where they are. All
of our lives are enhanced by a better understanding of the diverse world in which
