Student Focused Outreach Activity | Calling for Student Responses!
The University of Utah Counseling Center is requesting responses to the question prompts below in order to create an artistic display of how some students respond to hearing, witnessing, and/or experiencing racism. The purpose of this survey is to hear about students' experiences of racism, as well as their responses as bystanders to witnessing acts of racism. It is our hope that this display will encourage more students to speak up when confronted with racism.
