Discussion Forums

The USF Counseling Center acknowledges that social and political events are impacting the lives of USF students. During the weeks of October 26 – November 6, we will be dedicating some of our time and attention in several spaces with the Counseling Center.


What’s Next: Moving Forward Post Election

Want to talk about what comes next? Come connect with your fellow Bulls to engage in support, community, and constructive dialogue. Bulls from across the political spectrum are welcome. These 1-hour long spaces will be hosted by counseling center clinicians, with no formal agenda, so come to use the space as it would feel helpful to you. You may come and go at any time, but please turn your cameras on. You will need to be signed in as a USF student in Teams, and no anonymous participants will be admitted. Please note: These spaces are open to USF students only.


Drop-In Workshop and CHAT & CONNECT spaces: Focus on Managing Election-Related Stress

During the weeks of October 26 – November 6, we will be dedicating some of our time and attention in several Drop-In Workshop and Chat & Connect spaces to focus on managing election-related stress. While these sessions will continue to address their typical weekly topics, we will also apply many of these skills and supportive elements to coping during election season. Feel free to let the facilitators know how they can address your specific needs!


USF Counseling Center previously offered two unique, facilitated spaces to support the needs of our diverse Bulls community during the Summer 2020 semester. These forums, known as Making Sense of Now and Beyond, were a continuation from the initial Making Sense of NOW forums, in response to on-going events @ USF and in the United States impacting various communities including, but not limited to: COVID-19, xenophobia, killings of unarmed Black people, systemic racism, privilege, oppression, and institutional challenges. As of the 07/30/2020, these specific discussion forums have been suspended.
