The Salisbury University Counseling Center strives to affirm, promote and celebrate diversity. We are committed to being aware of and understanding diversity in its broadest sense. We value the importance of diversity for all individuals. People from every background are affected by issues of culture. Such has been highlighted by many recent events. When there is violence, or other acts of discrimination and oppression, which target any identity or group of people, the Counseling Center is here to stand in solidary with those marginalized populations. Multicultural competence and cultural humility are essential components of our work with every client and are ongoing areas of professional growth of the Center.
Notably, we all benefit from an understanding of how power, privilege, cultural identities, (e.g. gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, social class, and many others) and individual differences affect our daily experiences. The Counseling Center recognizes that students come to the center at various levels of comfort with these identities and therefore, make it a priority to meet students where they are. All of our lives are enhanced by a better understanding of the diverse world in which we live.
