Fresno State offering counseling in wake of Trump’s election


Fresno State is offering counseling for students concerned over the election of Donald Trump. 

Fresno State sent out a press release announcing counseling services for students that are expressing concern over President-elect Trump.

The services will be offered starting Monday, November 14 at the school’s Student Health and Counseling Center.

Students are encouraged to walk in if they need services.

Gaby Encinas, coordinator of the Dream Success Center, said that undocumented students are concerned with Trump’s immigration policies.

Encinas is working on developing workshops with local immigration attorneys to inform students about their residence and educational status.

Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro released the following statement, “As your President, I am personally committed to fostering a welcoming and supportive campus environment where everyone can thrive. During challenging times, we have the greatest opportunity to listen and learn from one another. I was heartened and inspired by the impromptu conversations I had with many of you on campus and in the community today. Your resilience and optimism will propel us forward as we stay focused on our mission to boldly educate and empower students for success.”
