CAPS Services for Students of Color
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.
CAPS Group Counseling Options
CAPS offers a variety of groups for Students of Color where students can connect with others and find support:
The intent of this group is to provide support for first-generation students of color navigating a predominantly white institution (PWI). In this group, students will focus on how their individual talents and strengths can improve their college experience. Topics of discussion include resilience, overcoming imposter syndrome, self-care, social support, transferable skills, and other social identities.
This group helps increase knowledge of U.S. cultures and practice English-speaking skills. Students develop skills to cope with adjustment, stress, loneliness, relationships and other challenges. They receive support, understanding, and suggestions from other international students. The group provides a space to share learning experiences, resources, and connect with others from around the world.
This group provides a safe and brave space for male students of color (e.g. Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, etc.) to provide support and explore topics related to race, culture, ethnicity, relationships, academics, anxiety, and much more.
This is a supportive space for women of color to explore their experiences, thoughts, and feelings from a cultural lens on topics such as confidence, well-being, and much more.
“Thank you, [facilitator], for leading this group of strong women of color into forming a great support system within each other. I will take everything I learned with me and utilize it to grow as a person. Thank you.”
“It’s the best way to get out of your comfort zone with a small group of people and it begins your journey to learn more about yourself.”
“The group helped me learn that it is okay to express my inner self and taught me ways to look at myself and see what I could grow within myself.”
“I loved being able to open up and trust a group that understands what I’m going through.”
“It made me want to participate more on campus and it made campus not seem like a bad place.”
“Please continue the group.”
