SJCCC History & Audience

From 2004-2016, Texas A&M University Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS), formerly known as Student Counseling Service, hosted an annual 2-day conference called “College Counseling in a Multicultural World”. This conference focused on providing counseling services to various diverse student populations in a college counseling environment. In 2017, College Counseling in a Multicultural World” became the “Social Justice in College Counseling Conference,” shifting focus to topics directly addressing how systemic variables of power, privilege and oppression impact college students from marginalized backgrounds. In response to Texas Senate Bill 17, SJCCC continues to strive to provide knowledge and skills to mental health providers within college counseling centers and universities to better serve all students. This year’s conference aims to support a campus culture of care.
