To Our Students:

Students,

We are outraged at the recent acts of violence directed at Asian Americans in this country. The tragic violence two weeks ago in Atlanta is just one example of the hate and discrimination members of the Asian and Asian American communities are enduring on a daily basis. 

Our office is committed to the respect of all races, ethnicities, and cultures. We appreciate the diversity of our college and will continue to promote cultural humility and inclusion. That said, hate and discrimination will never be tolerated, and we will continue to actively support all students at the CoM. 

To our students of Asian descent, we apologize for our delayed message. Please know our delay does not indicate a lack of concern or support. Please feel free to let us know what you need, whether it be with our office or outside our office. We understand if you prefer to meet with someone outside the College of Medicine. If so, we will work with you to identify others at FSU or in the community to meet with you. 

If you would like to make an appointment with us, or ask about other resources or providers, please email us at psychappt@med.fsu.edu or feel free to email us individually. 

We support you and grieve with you in solidarity.
