SJCCC History & Audience
From 2004-2016, Counseling & Psychological Services, or CAPS (formerly known as Student Counseling Service), at Texas A&M University hosted an annual 2-day conference called “College Counseling in a Multicultural World”. This conference focused on providing counseling services in a college counseling environment to various diverse student populations. From 2017-2019, our focus shifted to social justice topics to more directly address how systemic variables of power, privilege and oppression impact our college students from marginalized backgrounds. Our hope with this shift was to provide knowledge and skills to mental health providers within college counseling centers and universities to better serve these students. We plan to continue this important work in future conferences to come.
