Diversity Statement

Diversity Statement

Georgia State University’s Counseling & Testing Center (CTC) staff is strongly and proudly committed to furthering the academic success and wellbeing of a diverse and dynamic student body. We believe that prejudice and oppression are detrimental to human development and that education is a tool for addressing oppression in many of its forms. The CTC provides free access to high quality services that are characterized by compassion and cultural competence. Across our individual, group, classroom and program services, we work to create learning environments in which everyone is respected, welcomed and celebrated.

Diversity Highlights
Multicultural awareness and competency is our goal in all areas of center service. Our staff represents the cultural diversity of our student constituency, including race/ethnicity, sexual identity, age, religious affiliation, socioeconomic background, and gender. Culturally diverse students are well represented as consumers of all center services. The Counseling & Testing Center hosts Georgia State University’s Biennial Cultural Competency Conference and has done since 2002.
