- BLM Movement and Advocacy
- Power and privilege
- Finding motivation
- Coping with loss
- Social distancing
- Remote learning
- Developing community
- Power dynamics in and out of the classroom
- Food/Housing/financial insecurities
…and much more. If you are a Black student who is interested in finding a safe space to meet and talk with others who may have similar experiences, then these support sessions are for you. These support sessions are led by two Black Psychologists, Dr. Jael Amador and Dr. Gary Dillon, who work from a social justice and multicultural framework. We meet on Fridays at 2 pm.
To participate in these support sessions, send an email to Dr. Jael Amador at Jail.Amador@baruch.cuny.edu from your Baruch student email account and we will send you the Zoom link.
In solidarity and support,
