Title: Challenges and Opportunities of DEI work in University and College Counseling Centers
Shawn Blue, Psy.D.
Diversity, equity and inclusion endeavors requires navigation of a number of factors within university and college counseling centers. Addressing the needs of marginalized students continues to be a priority and has only increased since the recent pandemic. Focusing on the needs of marginalized students groups poses challenges on the multiple settings of student matriculation (PWI’s, HBCU’s, HSI, AANAPISI, ANNH, MSI, NASNTI). This presentation will discuss the multiple challenges that outreachers who engage in DEI focused outreach face as well as the many opportunities this work provides.
