UVA Career Center Message of Support: Anti-Asian Violence
The Career Center stands with and supports all Asian-identifying students, staff, and faculty during this time where anti-Asian crimes and racism are rampant. We mourn for the victims of the recent hate crime in Atlanta. We recognize the disturbing rise of racism and xenophobic attitudes and actions towards the Asian community over the last year, in a country with a history of anti-Asian oppression. We condemn all anti-Asian violence, words, stereotypes, and attitudes. We are committed to continuing to better ourselves and our services to ensure our students know that our office values and cares for them, as we attempt to fulfill our mission of engaging and supporting students in the discovery and pursuit of meaningful lives.
We would like to amplify and support our colleagues’ eloquent statement from Multicultural Student Services that can be found here. We would also like to share our specific career-related resources for Asian-identifying students here. Information on utilizing CAPS can be found here.
