As advocacy centers within the division of Student Affairs, we are saddened and upset by the unfortunate incidents against Black people in the United States. We acknowledge that these tragedies can have a significant impact on people in our communities. As a CU community, recognizing that institutional racism occurs at all levels, we encourage working together to create dialogue and solutions among students, staff, faculty, and police. We would like to continue to do our best to support students within our CU Boulder community who are impacted by providing opportunities to talk and receive support. We all process tragedies differently which can range in emotions such as experiencing frustration, confusion, anger, sadness, etc. If you are in need of support during this time (and any time), please reach out to any professional staff at the following centers:
The Cultural Unity and Engagement Center Center for Community (C4C)Suite N320 www.colorado.edu/cue 303-492-5667
Counseling and Psychological Services (confidential) Walk-in Hours: M - F: 10AM - 4PM www.colorado.edu/health/counseling 303-492-6766 Two locations: Center for Community room S440; Wardenburg, 1st floor
During the fall and spring semesters, all CU students, staff and faculty are invited to join the CUE and International Student & Scholar Programs for the weekly International Coffee Hour! This is a popular place to meet people, have great conversations, free refreshments and prizes! Don’t miss this important CU tradition!
Join the Women’s Resource Center, Gender & Sexuality Center, and CUE Center for a special presentation! In a world that continues to be highly dualistic, people who hold personal identities that fall outside our everyday constructions of a singular gender, race/ethnicity, or sexual orientation experience belonging in a different way. Even though there are increasing numbers of people who are multiracial, sexually fluid, and/or gender creative, these populations continue to be overlooked by both majority and minoritized groups. Join us for a discussion about experiences of being “in-between” or outside the boundaries of society’s norms, and the impact of constantly navigating and coding-switching to fit into different communities and environments.
If you are living in non-binary intersections of race/ethnicity, gender, and/or sexuality, come to this panel for affirmation and advice. If you want to better support your community, come to this panel learn how to make space for people with non-binary identities
