Acknowledgement of Loss
Counseling Services again acknowledges losses of life that occurred this past week. The pain in Baton
Rouge, St. Paul, and Dallas touches all of us. We stand united with both those who
seek equality and those who protect and serve at UHCL and beyond. Counseling Services
recognizes that our students of color may be greatly impacted by these events in ways
that they feel others cannot understand. Ultimately, we strive to create a safe space
for our entire student body and offer multiple services for students to discuss their
reactions. Counseling Services also acknowledges that law enforcement officers, along
with their family and friends, may be significantly impacted. We continue to encourage
the UHCL community to pay attention to the grief and the many painful emotions that
can come from these incidents. Counseling Services therapists are available for UHCL
students, staff, and faculty who need support or guidance in this difficult time.
