The University Counseling Service has a strong commitment to meeting the needs of diverse people.  In all areas of the UCS, we strive to create an environment where all people feel welcome.  As a staff, we define cultural diversity as personal or social identities based in cultural, individual, group, or role differences including, but not limited to, those based on race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, mental health status, relational and family status, religion, spirituality, language, nationality, citizenship status, social class, economic status, veteran status, disability and ability, gender identity and expression, body type and size, as well as diverse ideas, values, and lifestyles.
