CAPS Pledge of Support

At CAPS, we recognize that incidents of racism both within our campus community and outside of it can significantly impact the emotional well-being of our community members, particularly people of color. We acknowledge the significant pain that race-related aggression activates and the reality of racial trauma. We understand the ways in which power, privilege, and oppression can inflict hurt onto members of the Mason community.  It is our mission to support members of the Mason community by creating a safe, supportive, affirming and inclusive environment that embraces diversity and honors the intersecting identities of everyone on our campus. CAPS provides a confidential space where students may seek support and process their feelings and reactions. If you would like to connect with a CAPS counselor, we invite you to call 703-993-2380 or stop by CAPS in SUB I, suite 3129. We are here for you. Your emotions are valid and they matter. You are not alone.
