The University Counseling Center (UCC) is committed to diversity as a core value of our organization. UCC provides services within a context that values the uniqueness of each human being and remains sensitive to cultural and individual diversity in the immediate and extended community. This includes our respect for how ethnic/racial identity, religious beliefs, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, disability, body shape/size, differences in physical ability and veteran status might impact a person's experience in the UR community and the larger societies and world in which we live.
The staff at UCC is also committed to maintaining awareness that our various cultural lenses have an impact on how we view our colleagues and our students, and we remain committed to dismantling our biases.
