Orlando shooting support: As the details of the tragedy continue to unfold about the shooting in Orlando, UCC and UHS remain committed to being responsive to our students and campus partners. This shooting took place at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub that also hosts educational and social events and is inclusive of people representing many racial, cultural, sexual and gender identities and communities in Orlando. Because the ethnic identity of the shooter has been released, some negative and hurtful stereotyping is emerging in the careless speculations about this incident. And so we recognize that UR students from a number of different communities are being impacted and needing additional support.
During regular business hours please contact the UCC at (585) 275-3113. If you need to speak with someone immediately outside of normal business hours, please contact the UCC Crisis Line at (585) 275-3113 to speak to the therapist on-call.
When our community is shaken by tragic or abhorrent events on campus or beyond, the UCC staff wants to acknowledge the impact of these events on the students we serve. We hold firm to the values of inclusion, multicultural diversity and social justice. We seek to foster a community that is safe for all students.
We want to remind you that you are not alone and that there are a variety of services available to support you through arduous times. We applaud the tireless efforts of campus organizations, student groups, and committed individuals who provide spaces for discussion of all forms of inequality at our university and in our world. We invite students to access these many resources. We also invite you to reach out to the UCC as needed for emergency walk-in appointments, individual or group counseling, or tailored outreach programs by request. We can be reached by phone at (585) 275-3113.
UR students, staff and faculty - if you have someone you are concerned about, remember that the UCC is available for consults 24/7, just call us (585) 275-3113, or make use of the CARE network to help someone get connected to all the support and UR services they need!
