Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity involves the understanding, affirmation, and professional application of the richness of human differences, experiences, and intersecting identities. In an on-going effort to be an actively anti-racist center, CAPS strives to be a co-conspirator alongside other campus resources with a shared commitment to providing an emotionally safe and respectful environment for all. We promote and amplify the voices of individuals who have been marginalized. Therefore, we will use every opportunity to create lasting systemic change.

Support Groups

Empowering Students of Color

This weekly group serves as a safe, trusting, and affirming space for marginalized students who identify as a person of color. Group members will have an opportunity to provide support to their peers and build a community of individuals with shared experiences. This group seeks to create a healthy, open dialogue for members to share their unique experiences and to facilitate empowerment.

Stress and Anxiety Management Group

This group is designed for students who have symptoms related to stress and anxiety and are seeking support and methods to cope with stress. In the group, students who experience stress and anxiety can gain support and constructive feedback from other students who struggle with problems related to stress/anxiety.

Counselors will present psychoeducational information related to stress/anxiety, at the request of the group.

If you are interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. David Davino at (434)395-2409.


This weekly group is intended to provide an affirming, supportive space for students who identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ communities. Students will be afforded opportunities to explore issues of importance to themselves and the queer community (e.g., experiences of discrimination / oppression / marginalization, identity integration / acceptance / living “authentically,” coming out to family /friends /others, transition/gender-affirming care, intersectionality, advocacy) while also experiencing a greater sense of connection to others. Students interested in the group and/or have questions, please contact Dr. Brandon Creech at (434) 395-2409.
