Commitment to a Campus Free of Sexual Violence (Summer 2020)

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is committed to a campus community free of sexual violence. The recent social media posts discussing sexual violence in our community, while empowering for some, may cause distress for others, and we want to remind you that CAPS is here for you. We are committed to providing students with a safe and confidential space to seek support. We are offering remote services and trauma-informed care.  If you would like to speak to a psychologist at CAPS, please call us at 518-442-5800 or email us at

In Solidarity with Students of Color and Racial Justice Work (Summer 2020)

Counseling and Psychological Services is mourning the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and the countless other unarmed Black people who have been targeted and murdered because of their race. We unequivocally condemn acts of violence, hatred, and racism. These murders, and innumerable other acts of discrimination and oppression, represent a racist and anti-Black pandemic in our country.  CAPS is committed to dismantling systems of oppression and we stand in solidarity with our Black students, faculty, staff, and community members against these horrific acts.   

It is normal to feel anger, fear, sadness, exhaustion, confusion, or any number of intense or mixed emotions when incidents of racial terrorism are covered in the news or are the topic of conversations with those close to us.  If you would like to seek support, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by calling CAPS at 518-442-5800.  You may request to speak with a specific staff member if you would like, and can find a full list of our staff with information about each of us here.
