A Message for the UCI Community

Our UCI campus community is responding to the recent violence abroad and campus climate tensions with concern and solidarity with our sister campuses.

We all react to traumatic events and express grief differently. Some of us are angry, some scared, and some may be numb or not affected at all. We differ in how we experience and express emotions; some even choose to avoid outward expression.  Some of you may find the news coverage overwhelming and will need to unplug.

Talk with others about how you are feeling and get support if you need it.

We have counselors available for you on-campus should you want to talk with someone, even for just a check in about how you are feeling.

If you feel that someone else needs help, please reach out to them and encourage them to talk as well.

The UCI Counseling Center is open 8-4:30 for urgent care and can be reached by phone 24/7 at (949) 824-6457. You will also find resources on our website.
