Diversity & Inclusion
Howdy! Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) values and celebrates the diversity of our students. We also recognize that systems of privilege, power, and oppression can negatively impact students’ lives, their adjustment to college, their mental health and overall wellness, and thereby their academic success. CAPS hopes to provide a space where students can share and process their experiences as multicultural beings with various intersecting identities. We strive to support and empower our students as they embark and continue on their journeys at Texas A&M University. Read our Diversity Statement.
In accordance with TAMU and CDC social distancing guidelines, our Let’s Talk program will be suspended for the remainder of the semester. If you need support, please visit our homepage for information on our current services. Regular services will resume once on-campus classes are reinstated. Thank you for your patience in this process.
The Let’s Talk program is an outreach initiative that meets and engages students in conversation in an environment that feels safe and empowering to them.
The following pages provide information and resources for several marginalized student populations that we hope are helpful to them in navigating their educational journey at Texas A&M. We will be adding more information and addressing the concerns of additional student populations as we continue to grow our website.
CAPS strives to continue growing in its understanding of issues of diversity and social justice and their implications on mental health and the students we serve. Our Social Justice in College Counseling Conference was created to provide mental health providers with a collegial learning environment where they can further their knowledge and understanding of marginalized student populations and their unique mental health needs as well as gain skills that can result in the provision of more culturally competent care and further the field of college mental health.
