Support Related to 2019 novel Coronavirus

The Student Counseling Center expresses our deepest condolences to those we have lost and the many people and families in China, Asia and across the world who are impacted by the 2019 novel Coronavirus. The travel ban and other policy changes also negatively affect our international students on campus, and we have also been troubled to learn multiple discriminatory and xenophobic incidents have happened on campus that target Chinese and Asian/Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) community. Although fear for health-related concerns may be legitimate, mocking, stereotyping, or marginalizing international students and AAPI community causes stress and trauma and is never acceptable. Because of this, the Student Counseling Center condemns any actions that racialize infectious diseases against marginalized communities.
