Support Groups

Support groups are a safe space for students to find solidarity and encouragement with other students. This is not counseling or group therapy. Potential topics include living with racism and discrimination, social distancing and loneliness, navigating college, and other adjustment difficulties. Support groups are a space to talk about concerns, share experiences and stay connected with other students.

If you are interested in starting/participating in a support group, please call or email Motlow Counseling Services.
