In Solidarity & Action
As a department within Student Affairs, the UCC is committed to protecting and supporting the well-being of all our students, and we proudly stand in solidarity with them. It is our responsibility to advocate for justice in society and engage in meaningful efforts to dismantle racism and other forms of hate.
These forms of hate have serious impact on our collective mental health. The commonplace nature of these racist incidents has led to an inevitable sense of exhaustion, fear, and numbness, while others may be feeling anger, disgust, and resentment. As we attempt to navigate this challenging reality, we are reminded that in order to stand up against hate and injustice, we all have individual and collective work to do.
The UCC is here to provide support to the Pitt community. We are currently developing a variety of online services and resources to support our students of color and allies.
Given the local, state, and federal guidelines regarding community response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University Counseling Center is closed at its physical location in Nordenberg Hall. All satellite offices (including those located in residence halls) are also closed at this time.
All in-person services (including drop-in services) are suspended. The UCC is now offering a variety of online services and programs to meet the needs of our community during this time.
Please continue to take care of your health and wellbeing.
