Personal wellness and identity
We understand that success in law school starts with a feeling of belonging. You’ll find multiple offerings here, including short- term counseling and educational services, a separate office specifically dedicated to serving students with disabilities, and a diversity center. There are numerous affinity groups, programs, services, and staff members dedicated to creating an environment where students feel comfortable expressing their racial, ethnic, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, and all other dimensions of their social and cultural identity. Additionally, there is a prayer/reflection room, walking desks in the library, weekly yoga classes, a new wellness center in 2022, and other wellness programming offered throughout the year.
