Supporting our Diverse Community


It is important that we all stay informed about the ways that the COVID-19 health crisis differentially impacts various communities and various members of our community. Below are articles that may help to highlight some important areas of concern:

Impact of COVID-19 planning for DACA Students

Impact of COVID-19 on low-income immigrant families

Racism/xenophobia in relation to COVID19


The Asian Pacific Planning and Policy Council (A3PCON) reports that as of March 27, 2020 there have been more than 750 racially biased attacks against Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islanders in the US. These attacks have come in relation to the Covid19 health crisis. As a department, we extend our support to the AAPI community and to all individuals and families who are especially vulnerable during this time.


In the weeks and months ahead, students from various intersecting backgrounds will likely face unanticipated challenges and will need different kinds of supports. Below please find resources that we hope will be helpful.
