Success Through Wellness

Navigating the news

Election Day Results

November 8th 2017

The Health and Counseling Center (HCC) acknowledges that local and national elections can result in many different reactions and responses. Over the year, many in our community have been impacted by larger political events to an extent that it has impaired their ability to thrive or led them to feel unsafe on campus. It can be particularly stressful for individuals struggling with a friend group or family members who are politically divided. We hope the HCC can be a space where all reactions/responses are processed. Whatever your belief or political affiliations, we are here to support you.

Violence in the US

November 7th 2017

The Health and Counseling Center (HCC) is deeply saddened that within such a short time, we once again are faced with the tragedies of violent acts within our country. The HCC acknowledge and offer our support and condolences to all those that have been impacted either directly or indirectly by the shootings that occurred in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Thornton, Colorado and the act of violence in New York. We recognize that this could be a very difficult time for many students, faculty and staff who are from these areas, have loved ones impacted by the tragedies or who are impacted by gun violence. The HCC is here to provide a safe and confidential environment for you to process any reactions you may have. We are here to support you. Please contact us at 303-871-2205 or HCC after hours counselor on call at 303-871-2205/Press 1. We encourage you to reach out to us as well as others in your life who can support you.
