University Health & Counseling Services recognizes the historical and ongoing racial injustice and violence perpetrated against various communities of color. As the two-year anniversary of George Floyd's murder approaches, we continue to affirm the value of his life and lives of all Black individuals. In the aftermath of the shooting in Buffalo, which was fueled by white supremacy and hatred, we reiterate that Black lives matter

UH&CS is committed to creating a community of inclusivity and diversity, and we stand in solidairity with our Black students, faculty, staff and community members against racial violence. We unequivocally condemn acts of violence, hatred, and racism. 

We remain vigilant in our efforts: 

  • To ensure UH&CS is a place where all students know they will receive quality, culturally inclusive care. 
  • To continuously challenge notions of white supremacy and call out injustice. 
  • To recruit and retain racially and ethnically diverse staff, as we know representation matters.

Students looking for support are encouraged to schedule a same-day appointment by calling (216) 368-5872 or web-booking through Students can also register for BIPOC Support Space via Campus Groups.
