Support Groups

Are you interested in some of our ongoing support groups? Our goal is to provide opportunities for students to learn about and explore their identities, values, communities, and more. We foster spaces where students can engage with complicated issues while also feeling welcomed and affirmed. We engage in critical discussions, build community, recognize social problems, and ultimately work toward a more just and equitable world.
