ECAPS is here to support students as they work on personal and societal levels to address the traumatic impacts of racism, oppression, and injustice. If you are a student and experiencing distress related to the ongoing violence toward Black-identified individuals or the impact of resulting protests and unrest, ECAPS staff members are here for you. We are ready to listen to you, support you, talk about self-care options for coping with racial trauma, and help you identify healing spaces. Taking care of your emotional and physical well-being is critical at this time.
Intercultural Student Affairs at Emerson centers humanity, compassion, and education at the forefront of everything we do. We honor, celebrate, and validate the narratives of marginalized voices, and in turn, support community-based advocacy, reflection, and action. In short, we want to create and hold space where people can be who they are.
