Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Counseling Center at UNC Charlotte 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 in response to ongoing violence against the Black community

The staff of the Counseling Center at UNC Charlotte have been following the horrific and tragic events that have occurred recently in Baton Rouge, LA, Falcon Heights, MN, and Dallas, TX. We cannot begin to imagine the level of pain, invalidation, frustration and anger that many people are trying to come to terms with, and make sense of, in the aftermath of such senseless violence and unnecessary deaths.  We recognize that these tragedies are evidence of historical systemic oppression and the devaluing of Black lives and bodies in our society, even now.   Our hearts go out to the families and friends of all the victims of these tragedies.

We recognize that diverse communities of UNC Charlotte are affected by these tragedies and may be in need of support. Please know that the Counseling Center is, as always, committed to promoting inclusion and we honor the diversity and strength within the Black community during these difficult times.  We strive to listen to and validate the lived experiences of those who have been historically disenfranchised and disregarded, and provide support in coping with such feelings of marginalization and helplessness.

Statement on the Orlando shootings:

The staff of the Counseling Center at UNC Charlotte have been following the horrific events that occurred at Pulse, a venue that serves as an educational and social hub of the LGBTQ community in Orlando. Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the victims of this senseless crime. The mass casualties at Pulse are greatly disturbing to the entire world but have had a particularly hard-hitting impact on members of the LGBTQ community and their families and allies. Similarly, the shooting has resulted in a predictable backlash and stereotyping based on the identity of the shooter. 

Please know that the Counseling Center is, as always, committed to promoting inclusion as a fundamental basis of a physically safe and psychologically healthy community. We recognize that diverse communities of UNC Charlotte students are affected by this tragedy and in need of support.  Counseling appointments are available Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm by calling the Center at 704-687-0311 or visiting us at 158 Atkins. Students seeking emergency support outside of business hours should contact a HealthLink nurse at 1-888‑267‑3675 or 704‑687‑7400. More detailed information about our services is available throughout this website. We iterate our statement on inclusion and diversity below.  More information about support services will be available as events unfold.
