The CSU Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community has experienced a rise in anti-Asian hate and oppression.  The horrendous violence which targeted Asian women in Georgia is another example of racism and the indelible impacts of trauma for the AAPI community.  This oppression and discrimination has existed for countless generations and resulted in xenophobic policies, internment, violence, and oppression.  During the past year, the number of incidences of racism targeting the AAPI community has been tragically and inaccurately tied to the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

CSU Health Network stands with the CSU and broader Asian American Pacific Islander community.  We denounce any type of violence, oppression, and racism that targets human-beings because of race, ethnicity, or any other aspect of identity. We at CSU Health Network are deeply committed to creating a welcoming, supportive space in which all students can be fully seen and valued entirely.  To our AAPI community, CSU Health Network welcomes you, values you, and will stand with you.

Our staff are available to support you and your needs.  If you would like to speak with a counselor, we have Multicultural Counseling Team.  For more information on our multicultural counseling services, please click here.
