At CMHC we value the diversity of our student body, and want to ensure that our services are accessible to all students. Our Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists provide counseling, support, and outreach for student populations with marginalized and underrepresented identities. Although our Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists have a unique role in specializing services to reach these student populations, all CMHC clinicians and staff are specifically trained in and committed to working with our diverse student body.
Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists meet the needs of the campus community in different ways. In an effort to provide services that are convenient for students, CMHC offers a number of ways to connect with the Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists, both inside and outside of the Counseling and Mental Health Center.
Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists work closely with faculty and staff to offer consultation, trainings, and support as they work directly with students; however, the services provided to students are always confidential. The Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists rely on interdepartmental collaboration and campus partnerships to meet our students’ needs. Some of our partners include the Multicultural Engagement Center, the Gender & Sexuality Center, African and African Diaspora Studies Department, Mexican and Latino Studies, Center for Asian American Studies, International Student & Scholar Services, the Office of the Dean of Students, and Services for Students with Disabilities.
