Many in our Emory community have been impacted by the current political climate.  At CAPS, we are committed to affirming value, inclusivity, and belonging.  We deeply value our global and diverse community, which includes international students, faculty, and staff.

We take a stance against discrimination and oppression in any form.

CAPS provides a safe space for addressing the impact of the political climate on students’ well-being.  If you are experiencing negative treatment, threats, or more subtle forms of oppression because of your race or ethnicity, religious affiliation, country of origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other aspect of your identity, we are here to support you. 

You may contact us at (404) 727-7450.

We encourage any student who is struggling with the personal impact of the political climate to reach out.
