Racial Trauma and Healing

Black Lives Matter. This phrase is central to a movement that aims to address a long history of systemic violence and oppression that has been a part of this country since its founding. The EKU Counseling Center affirms the Black Lives Matter movement, and stands in solidarity with those who are marching, and demanding that our country listen. 

The EKU Counseling Center is using this space to provide resources, supports, and education to the students of EKU, as related to current events. The aim of the center is to maintain awareness of the current needs of students and individuals in our community, and provide what support we can. This page will be updated with ongoing resources, links, and support. 

If you are a student, and are in need of our services, please call us to setup an appointment.
