Facilitators: Adjoa Osei, PsyD and Elisa Cameron-Niang, LMHC

Being a Black-identified graduate student can be a disorienting and marginalizing experience. Have you been feeling physically exhausted or emotionally fatigued? Are you having trouble concentrating or finding it difficult to maintain your academic workload? Do you notice yourself ruminating about certain interactions, wondering if they were racially charged? Do you ever have the feeling that you do not belong in your graduate program?

For many, recent events have exacerbated existing challenges and posed entirely new obstacles within their graduate programs.  You might find yourself feeling isolated and questioning how you will be able to navigate this journey alone. This group is an academic support space designed to offer Black-identified students the space to process thoughts and feelings, get feedback and support on their experiences, develop organization skills and self-care strategies, all while building community.

Facilitators: Adjoa Osei, PsyD and Elisa Cameron-Niang, LMHC
