The events that occurred in Charlottesville during the “Unite the Right” rally over the weekend are tragic, and we send our deepest condolences to those who were injured, as well as the family and friends who have been affected. Counseling and Psychological Services condemns violence and all forms of discrimination, including intolerance and hate. We work to recognize the psychological, emotional, and spiritual impact that these events have on our campus community. The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff remain at the heart of our work. We are available by appointment and through urgent care services for anyone seeking support during this challenging time. We hope that this acts as another important opportunity to build trust, and continue to promote Cal Lutheran’s shared values of justice and commitment to diversity.
