  • 6/17/2020 - DACA Decision

    The United State Supreme Court released a historic decision to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). This is a positive step for all the DACA recipients on our campus and in our communities everywhere. Together, we celebrate this righteous moment for our students, and acknowledge the long and hard road it took to get here.

    We understand that it has been a difficult process awaiting the DACA ruling, particularly in the midst of other stressors caused by the pandemic and the national climate. We are committed to supporting the well-being, safety, and success of our undocumented students. 

    While we celebrate what this victory means for immigrant communities, we also acknowledge the ongoing challenges they face, particularly those who do not hold DACA status. 

    While experiencing stress related to these challenges is to be expected, CAPS stands alongside you and is here to provide confidential support. 

  • 6/1/2020 - Black Lives Matter

    Director Statement updated
    Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) stands against racism and violence in all its forms that’s aim is to harm and divide people because of our differences. We would like to express our care and compassion for those who have been directly or vicariously impacted by the protests, violence and terrorist attacks that have occurred in our country and abroad. In the aftermath of these events that are happening more frequently, it is normal to experience a range of feelings, such as sadness, fear, anger, helplessness, or guilt.  It would also be more than understandable for our students who have experienced previous trauma, belong to marginalized and/or under-represented identity groups to be feeling particularly vulnerable.  We encourage you to contact our office if you (or someone you know) would like additional support for coping with current events. Please call (805) 893-4411 or stop by CAPS during regular business hours and let the receptionist know you need to be seen today.
